This monograph contains an excellent review of the literature and bibliography on aneurysm of the cerebral vessels. The etiology, symptomatology and incidence of cerebral aneurysms are demonstrated by reports of cases. Reports of cases of aneurysms of the anterior, middle and posterior cerebral arteries, the anterior and posterior communicating arteries and the internal carotid and the basilar arteries collected from the literature are presented. The author then reports data on the thirty-two cerebral aneurysms found in the course of twelve thousand, five hundred and three necropsies. Charts and drawings of the anomalies observed about the circle of Willis are included. The cases are discussed at length, and cases to demonstrate the symptoms of aneurysms in certain regions are reported. The type is readable, the photographs are clear and the text is interesting. Lithoprint as used in this book has its advantages in monographs of this type.
