The author has taken from his own earlier work portions of those chapters which deal with practical phases of proctology and problems of interest to the physician as he goes about his daily tasks. It is a convenient little volume which should prove valuable to those who do not possess the author's more complete volume. In the foreword Dr. Curtice Rosser wrote "In 'The Essentials of Proctology,' which Dr. Bacon herewith offers to the student, the general practitioner, the surgeon and the specialist in colorectal diseases, is a concise, fluent and detailed exposition of the author's own experience and current practice." This is an accurate appraisal of the character of the book.
