Womens diseases are here treated as clearly as the most exacting student could require.The work of Dr. Ruddock is precisely what every woman needs, and contains information for the want of which she often suffers permanent loss of health.. The whole range of functions and diseases incident to women is treated with care and precision.-New England Medical Gazette. We do not hesitate to say that The Ladys Homeopathic Manual is the best book of its kind we ever examined. The author knows what to say, how to say it, and how to stop when it is said.-United States Medical and Szcrgicnl Jounal. The Ladys Manual is a work that should be in the hands of every lady in the land. The remedies prescribed are mainly homeopathic and hydropathic, and are extremely judicious. We never examined a medical work which pleased us so well. The fact that this is the Sixth Edition shows the estimate placed upon it by the public and the estimate is a just one, for the work is in every respect meritorious. As a book to be placed in the hands of married women it stands unrivalled, and yet it is full of just such information as the general practitioner should possess, and will here find easily and quickly.

Complaint occasionally reaches the Author that the continual introduction of changes into succeeding editions of his works is becoming a serious tax upon some purchasers, involving the necessity of their procuring a copy of each publication. The Author is fully alive to this complaint but it should be remembered that a work of this character is unlike an ordinary literary production, new editions of which simply require accuracy in reprinting and that in dealing with an ever-changing and expanding subject such as that herein treated of, there is hardly a doctrine or method of practice which has not to be repeatedly weighed md tested by the most recent investigations. The most advanced views and improved methods of practice will be looked for by the reader, and these the Author conscientiously endeavours to introduce so as to render each edition an improvement on its predecessor. The Author has endeavoured in the following pages to point out systematioally the medical and general treatment of the most frequently occurring derangements peculiar to the female organisation...
