Endeavoring to put the clinician's estimate of pain as a subjective symptom on a scientific basis, Maylard, already well known for his work on the "Surgery of the Alimentary Canal," in 1905 issued the book of which the second and revised edition is now before us. The appearance of the second edition so soon after the publication of the first is evidence of the appreciation by the profession of the value of the work. The whole work has undergone revision. Instead of certain matter on abdominal operations, which appeared in the first edition, there have been inserted chapters on abdominal neuroses and postoperative pain, constituting a valuable addition to the work and putting its entire text into harmony with its title.
