This is intended as a manual for students and is chiefly a work of compilation. The subject matter is divided into three sections: 1. General Surgery. 2. Surgery of Special Tissues. 3. Injuries and Diseases of Special Regions. Each of these is in turn subdivided. There is a lack of detail regarding the technic of the surgical measures indicated in the various conditions discussed, and, as the book is intended for students, the omission is a grave one.
