A Short Practice of Surgery. By Hamilton Bailey, F.R.C.S., Surgeon, Royal Northern Hospital, and R. J. McNeil Love, M.S., F.R.C.S., Surgeon, Royal Northern and Metropolitan Hospitals, London. Volume II. Cloth. Price, 20s. Pp. 531-1005, with 349 illustrations. London: H. K. Lewis & Company, Ltd., 1932.

These two volumes are carefully compiled and may serve as an excellent source of concise surgical information for the student and the practitioner. The statement in the preface of the first volume, "In presenting this survey of general surgery we have endeavored to include only such material as is recent or which has been generally accepted," is adhered to throughout the entire book. There are numerous illustrations, which clarify the text. Each part of the body is discussed with the special pathologic processes most frequently encountered.
