This volume, which previously appeared as part 13a of Breitenstein's Repitorien, now comes out as a seventh revised edition and as a separate work. The book is merely a compend and the author in his preface does not claim anything more for it. It is neither a "general surgery," as it is entitled, nor is it comprehensive even as a compendium on the subject. There undoubtedly is a place for such a volume in Germany, otherwise it would not survive to a seventh edition; but such books are not well regarded either by teachers or by students of medicine in this country.
