While containing "nothing new," as the author himself states, the above publication handles the subject matter in a clear, concise and exhaustive style that recommends it highly. The first chapter, dealing with the history of the operation, is especially interesting as giving line of work and results obtained by the first operators in this field, while the following chapters on the anatomy and pathology of the parts as well as the mode of operating, deal ably with the subject in all its aspects. The subject matter is one of serious interest not only to the surgeon, but to the general practitioner.
