This little volume, a reprint of the paper read by Dr. Roberts at the last meeting of the American Surgical Association, is one of the most valuable monographs that has appeared in America for many years. Its value consists in its brevity, its being concise and always to the point, and its wholesome disregard of traditions when experience shows that they are untrustworthy. We have already expressed our opinion of this volume in the editorial columns of this week's issue of The Journal.
