In this edition approximately twenty-five illustrations and fifty references have been added. There is a new comment on colostomy, another on sacral resection and a new paragraph on the use of neosynephrin hydrochloride. Murrieta's operation for rectal prolapse is new to this work, and the author's operation for hemorrhoids has been rewritten. These and a few other minor changes complete the alteration; hence no new criticism is required. As was stated in the review of the first edition, the book is interesting and instructive and will prove valuable as a work of reference.
