The articles on this subject which appeared serially in a medical journal have been collected and form the basis of the text of this book. Local anesthesia is treated exhaustively, the author being an enthusiast on the subject. The needs of the general practitioner who must work without the advantages which hospital facilities and trained assistants afford are kept in mind, and the author records his own experiences, thus consistently assuming responsibility for the efficiency of the methods recommended. The general principles of local anesthesia, technic and drugs employed are fully discussed, and its application to various operations in which it may be employed is detailed. Numerous well-made illustrations add much to make this work not only interesting but also useful and valuable.
