After introductory chapters on the anatomy and physiology of the olfactory apparatus, the author fully discusses the diagnosis and treatment of the various diseases affecting its several parts. Respecting nasopharyngeal polypi of a malignant nature he quite properly recommends radical treatment. This requires a formidable operation in order to sufficiently expose the growth for complete removal. It is imperatively demanded at an early day as the natural termination of the disease is death, and delay simply increases the difficulty of the operation. The book contains some very good illustrations and the report of numerous interesting cases.
