The purpose of this work is to set forth the detail and technic of the various gynecologic operations. No attempt has been made to discuss the etiology, pathology, symptoms and diagnosis in each condition, but rather the indications and contra-indications for operation have been considered, together with comparisons of the various methods at the operator's disposal in a given case. The descriptions of the various operations are unusually clear and complete, and in many instances each step of the procedure is illustrated. The book is very fully supplied with cuts. After a discussion of general considerations, the writers take up the consideration of vaginal operations, then the gynecologic operations performed by the abdominal route, together with a description of other abdominal operations which, while not strictly of a gynecologic nature, yet frequently are imposed on the operator; for instance, intestinal resection and anastomoses, repair of wounds of bladder and ureter,
