Dr. Stimson'tells us in his preface that in preparing the second edition of this work he has sought to indicate the changes that have been effected in operative methods and procedures by the adoption of antiseptic methods, and to describe such additions and substitutions as have been favorably received; the chief alterations and additions being found in the passages treating of excision of bones and joints, and of operations on the peritoneal cavity. The reputation of the author is quite sufficient guarantee that the work has been well done; but to see how well it has been done we must read the book. In the way of a manual of operative surgery it is all that can be desired.
