This volume of the series of London Practitioners' Manuals deals with the various topics of minor surgery clearly and the personal element is evident. This is a good point, as the author states what he believes to be right, and does not give the ideas of various authors, leaving the reader to draw his own conclusions, without any idea as to the author's preference. Many of the illustrations are, as usual, of instruments and appliances from cuts furnished by instrument-makers. As an example of bookmaking, the volume does not do credit to the University of London Press. It is very flimsily bound and printed on paper so heavy and thick as to make the book cumbersome.
