This excellent work has much to recommend it, especially to students and to beginners in venereal work. Too much space is probably given to the air-dilating instruments of English, French and German manufacture, and too little to the water-dilating types, so much in use in America. The arrangement of the subject matter into three chief divisions dealing with the anterior, the posterior and the female urethra is good. The anatomy of each part is accurately and concisely given. Then the instruments best adapted to each part are described. Finally, the pathology and treatment are covered in detail, particularly the use of various operative measures. Each subject is treated concisely, accurately and with a broad knowledge and wide experience. Too broad a field is covered perhaps, which necessarily makes the handling of many subjects somewhat too brief. Nevertheless, this little book should receive all the consideration it deserves.
