We study the bifurcations of limit cycles in a class of planar reversible quadratic systems whose critical points are a center, a saddle and two nodes, under small quadratic perturbations. By using the properties of related complete elliptic integrals and the geometry of some planar curves defined by them, we prove that at most two limit cycles bifurcate from the period annulus around the center. This bound is exact.
