From the author's preface it appears that he regrets that the general practitioner so much neglects the specialty of dental science. He believes that the practicing physician should be acquainted with the indications for operations on the teeth, and that he should know enough of dentistry to be able to give advice or express an opinion in matters pertaining to the specialty. This book, then, is written in great part for the physician. The translator, as may be seen by comparing the original work and the translation, has done his work well. The notes by Dr. Black form a valuable addition to the work. The book is profusely and well illustrated.
