The sixth edition of this always reliable textbook approaches, in its present form, the dignity of a true treatise. The work has been modernized to within a few months of its issue, not only by extensive elaboration and illustration, but also by the elimination of numerous methods and procedures which, though obsolete, still appear as necessary material in the mediocre textbook. Particularly refreshing are the chapters on suspension laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy and esophagoscopy, and one reads with respect the monograph on the ethmoid. The subject matter covering diphtheria, syphilis, asthma, allergy and the pollen treatment of hay-fever is unusually up to date. The book is well planned and executed. There are numerous excellent illustrations of prepared specimens, modern instruments, and reproductions of instructive roentgenograms. The volume can be recommended to the student and practitioner as an ideal text and reference work.
