The tenth section of this work is a monograph from the Jena clinic on the surgery of the stomach and doudenum. The authors have covered the subject with great thoroughness. The history, literature, symptomatology, pathology and treatment are taken up as in the other sections, with great regard for accuracy and detail. The text is very readable, and the discussions are extremely interesting. The subject is treated in a critical rather than dogmatic manner. For this reason the monograph will appeal strongly to the surgeon, while the medical student will be disappointed in the rather brief descriptions of technic, and the general practitioner in the difficulty of picking out those facts which he considers important.
