The reading of this volume makes one wish, without prejudice to native authors, that there were more works of this kind available in our own language. It appears to be a complete and detailed study of the temporal bone in states of health and disease. Roentgen technic is described in detail. An absorbing series of pen and ink illustrations indicate line by line, in three standard German positions, anatomic points of interest. A careful perusal of this section can hardly fail to be of immense benefit. There are chapters on disease states, and fac-similes of actual x-ray films accompanied by pen and ink drawings to illustrate important features. Syphilis and tuberculosis and their x-ray manifestations as well as new growths, benign and malignant, tumors, fractures, postoperative defects and congenital malformations are interestingly dealt with. There is a complete and absorbing discussion of the value and uses of roentgenology in otology
