The 1952 edition of "Monographs on Surgery," edited by Dr. B. Noland Carter, professor of surgery, University of Cincinnati, is an excellent book. This is the third volume of the "Monographs on Surgery." These volumes replace "Nelson's Loose Leaf Surgery." This volume consists of a group of outstanding papers, written by many authors, dealing with important surgical subjects. These papers should, indeed, be considered chapters on surgical subjects. Each of the subjects has been covered by an authority. An outstanding section of the volume is a group of seven papers dealing with urinary incontinence in the female. This symposium alone is well worth the price of the book. The paper, the type, and the illustrations are good. This monograph should be a welcome addition to surgical literature. Such monographs, constantly kept up-to-date, provide material of great importance to the practicing surgeon.
