A great deal of interesting material is compressed into this volume, and while a description of surgical technic is the primary purpose, one learns about the general problems of pancreatic and splenic disease as well. Of especial value is the analysis of surgical experience in the past which has led up to present methods. The book is well illustrated and indexed, and the bibliography is especially rich in French titles. The book should prove of great value to the American reader who wishes to familiarize himself with French practice in connection with the surgery of the spleen and the pancreas.
