It is necessary only to study the bibliography appended to each chapter of this book to learn the amount of effort which the author has put into his work. He has collected materials from the works of many contemporary authors and has provided an exhaustive display of accepted opinions and procedures. The chapter on proctitis and sigmoiditis, although brief, provides a bibliography which includes 282 articles. The chapter on lymphopathia venereum is well done and almost every article of any importance which has ever been published on this interesting topic is listed at the end of the chapter. The volume is interesting, instructive and well illustrated and will prove of distinct value not only as an index to proctologic literature but also as a work of reference.
