This monograph can be said to be one of the most excellent pieces of work ever written on that particular subject.

It is divided into three main parts: (a) bronchopulmonary carcinomas, (b) sarcomas and (c) pulmonary lymphogranulomatous lesions.

The first division takes up almost the whole volume and is really the part the brilliance of which makes the monograph outstanding.

The subject has been presented with complete thoroughness from the point of view of diagnosis, and the illustrations are numerous and well chosen; several colored plates add to the understanding of the text. Little is said as to treatment, and the only opinion expressed is that the present forms of therapy serve more as means of prolonging life, since the proportion of cures is so small. Of particular note is the bibliography, which is complete and represents a great deal of work.
