The excellence of this manual on surgery is evidenced by the fact that in nine months after the appearance of the book, a second edition was demanded. The author modestly states that in the second edition he has taken advantage of the hints kindly thrown out by reviewers and friends. Among the additions are a description of the bur operation on the mastoid, an illustrated summary of the recent advances in cerebral localization and a short section on the duodenum and peritoneal tuberculosis. Binnie has, by the revision, improved a work, the first edition of which received well-deserved commendation by reason of its clearness, completeness and conciseness.
