This book contains much more than the title indicates, so that it was necessary to crowd the subject material. This necessitated the use of type that is entirely too small for a textbook. One is struck by the similarity to Hey Groves' Synopsis of Surgery. The book contains so much surgical treatment that it might be used as a textbook for students of surgery. There is a poor distribution of space allotted to the various subjects. The physical treatment, which was the primary object in writing the book, is in many instances crowded, while material extraneous to the title is given more space. For example, on page 142 nearly a whole page is given to the subject of symptoms, with only a few lines referring to the physical treatment. The author was wise in the selection of material she has drawn from Mennell, Hey Groves, Jones and Lovett, and Tubby.
