We have received a copy of the third edition of the Handbook for Attendants on the Insane, published by authority of the Association. Drs. Hayes Newington and Beveridge Spence, to whom the matter was remitted, decided not to attempt a revision of the work, as the demand was so urgent and the publishers had none left in stock. They have, however, numbered the paragraphs so as to facilitate the answering of the questions to be found at the end of each chapter, and completed the book by adding the Regulations referring to the nursing examinations. As various suggestions have been made for further improvements, arrangements have been made with Messrs. Baillière, Tindall, and Cox to give timely notice when this new edition is approaching exhaustion, so that ample opportunity may be afforded for thorough revision prior to the issue of the fourth edition. Judging by past experience this will not be an affair of the dim and distant future. Meanwhile, we congratulate all concerned on the prompt appearance of this new issue in a serviceable form.
