The author presents a chronicle of the growth of the specialty indicated in the title. As specialization in practice has led to development of detail and technic, so in the description of the advance of this specialty, much detail and description are necessarily included. This specialty is not, however, too greatly isolated. In each section of the book the relations to general medicine are traced and the subjects are closely linked together. Etymology, literature, religion, economics, etc., as they have contributed to the study of laryngology and rhinology, are woven into the thread of the story. The book is interesting, readable and instructive. If there be any adverse criticism it is that many sections seem too short.
