Here is an unusual monograph, as excellent as it is unusual. The first half is devoted to the diagnosis of congenital lesions, injuries, inflammatory conditions, and tumors of the tongue, lips, face, jaws, scalp and skull. In this section injuries to the maxillae, syphilis, and carcinoma constitute the major part. The second half is devoted to anesthesia, particularly local, and to plastic procedures, such as restoration of the nose, lip and jaws, and operations on tongue and palate. There are a number of excellent colored plates of a type rarely seen in American textbooks. The book is worthy of the efforts of a translator who is interested in this subject.
