This is the first real effort that has been made to place the surgery of the peripheral nerves on the same plane with that of the brain and spinal cord. It is a thoroughly complete work, being based primarily on the fundamentals of anatomy, embryology and physiology. On every point the evidence has been formed from the best and most recent experimental work, and the conclusions have been drawn only after a careful analysis of the literature. The anatomy of peripheral nerves is dealt with in minute detail, particular stress being laid on their embryologic development. This is followed by a chapter on nerve degeneration and regeneration by G. Carl Huber, in which the progress of the experimental work is reviewed completely and clearly and so fairly that the reader can scarcely fail to secure a clear understanding of this field. The methods of nerve repair are ushered in by
