The editors have undertaken the task of producing an American edition of Wegele's book, because in their opinion it is an especially conscientious and thorough treatise on the subject. In addition to translating and arranging the original material, they have added points of diagnostic interest in connection with the various diseases discussed, chapters on the esophagus, Roentgen-ray diagnosis of the stomach and intestinal diseases, and on the basis of their own researches, a chapter on the comparatively new subject of the duodenal tube. In this complete form the book should be of great use to those engaged in general practice, in that it gives concisely the therapy of many conditions whose care is extremely difficult. The literature includes all material published up to the time of going to press.
