The Archives is glad to welcome this edition. The book first appeared twentytwo years ago and ever since has reappeared in new editions every four or five years. During its life, its size and price have remained about the same despite new knowledge and higher living costs, which speaks for the artfulness of its writer. Its illustrations—which reviewers always tend to compliment—have increased in number and interest.
The author believes that something can be learned from a study of surgical pathology that cannot be learned through general pathology. He defends this belief in an agreeable style that makes for easy reading. The first five editions of this particular text have been popular both with students and with their teachers. It is safe to predict that the sixth will have an equally successful career.
