193 + several blank memoranda pages. Gilt-lettered olive cloth. Fifth Edition, revised & enlarged. NY & London: D. Appleton. 1910.

First published in 1894, this is a book of questions and answers about the care and feeding of infants and children up to ten years of age. This enlarged and revised edition includes chapters on infant feeding, sick and healthy diets, food formulas, and areas of inquiry on sleep, bowels, crying, exercise, temperature, anxiety, and much more. Rubbing to front cover, obscuring "ING" in "FEEDING," else very good.
