Surgeons and gynecologists have been so much occupied of late years in writing of the larger gynecological operations that the stepping-stones to gynecology—the minor operations have had but little place in literature. This hiatus in gynecological literature has been filled by this book, from the pens of two men—one in Great Britain, the other in America—both admirably qualified for the work. Dr. Croom is well-known on this side the Atlantic, both as a writer and an operator, and it does not detract from his reputation to say that the American editor of the work is equally well-known.
The chapters of Part I, Diagnostic, of the book are on; Vaginal examinations, the Rectum, the Bladder, the Speculum, the Sound, Volsella and Tenacula, Dilatation of the Cervix Uteri with Tents, the Aspirator. In Part II, Therapeutics, the chapters are on: the Vulva, Vagina, Urethra and Bladder, Cervical Applications, Intra-uterine Therapeutics. In addition
