This small atlas contains forty-nine plates depicting the various structural and pathologic conditions that are so often seen clinically. The paper is of excellent quality. The illustrations and titles are crystal clear. This atlas should interest every physician, though the pediatricians and otologists will find it of greater value than those in other specialties. The general practitioner ought to derive much information from these pages since they offer a visual review of the drum membrane in different otitic infections. The atlas may also serve as an aid in teaching, and perhaps occasionally the pediatrician or otologist might show the approximate illustration to an intelligent patient, thus obviating the necessity of wasting his valuable time to explain a certain otitic condition to one not familiar with otology.
