This edition, published three years after the first, is evidence of the popularity of the book abroad. Although one would scarcely class as minor operations some of the operative procedures described in the chapter on tumors, they cannot be classed as major. On the whole, the author has confined himself closely to the limits of minor surgery and has clearly set forth the established procedures which the general practitioner may use in almost any emergency he may encounter. It seems strange that he relegates nitrous oxide anesthesia to the clinic and still goes into great detail about ether and chloroform. He has given in detail the differential diagnosis of most of the more common pathologic lesions, such as chronic inflammations and tumors of the surfaces of the body. In criticism, one might complain that there is no bibliography and little discussion of the relative merits of various methods of therapy.
