While the traditional form and conservative teaching of "Williams' Obstetrics" have been retained, the author points out that: "The book has been almost completely rewritten, with the result that little of the original text remains unaltered." Comparing this eighth with the first edition, one finds startling differences in size and text which are the result of progress made in obstetrics during the 38 years intervening between the first and present editions. The first edition appeared in 1903 and contained 845 pages, 630 illustrations, and the index occupied 26 pages. The present edition published this year contains 1401 pages, 925 illustrations
