The aut hor says that in preparing this work he had two objects in view: first, to present an atlas on surgery which should form a part of Lehmann's "Medical Atlases;" and second, to present a text on surgery which should come in between the too condensed compends and the more elaborate works on surgery, the idea being to condense as much as possible, yet to omit nothing which is essential.
The atlas consists of 80 full-page handsomely colored plates from life and 479 illustrations in the text, many of which are in two and three colors, and all of which are said to be original. As an atlas the work is a good one, and the artists and the publishers are to be congratulated on the excellence of the plates and illustrations. The text is concise and to the point, but possesses no other special advantage.
