"This small book has been written by request as a war contribution," says the author, "and in it I have endeavored to avoid two difficulties which I feared. The first concerned an explanation of our results which I knew would plunge me into ventures from which I could not escape unscathed; the second was to avoid any overestimation, from excess of enthusiasm, of the value of this method of wound treatment." To one who reads the book—one of a series of "war primers" —it is evident that the foregoing thoughts of the author have guided him in this abstract of his previous publications. The book is well written and the subject matter is presented clearly but tersely. It deals, of course, with his bismuth iodoform paraffin paste, the use of which has been frequently mentioned in The Journal.
