This fine work cannot be too highly praised. It is a magnificent tribute to the otolaryngologic, not to mention the publisher's, art. The portion devoted to text is minimal. For the larger part this atlas depicts familiar conditions in the ear, nose and throat. Less commonly seen situations are by no means neglected, however. The larger number of reproductions of disease conditions are in color so masterfully executed that the pleasure derived in gazing at them almost equals the informative aspect. In the section devoted to otology alone the illustrations number over 125, and similarly those relating to the nose, larynx and pharynx are generously apportioned. Intended chiefly for students and general practitioners, this work is nevertheless of great value to the specialist. Besides the disease conditions so beautifully portrayed there are adequate sections relating to topographic anatomy and therapeutic interventions.
