This textbook of general surgery, written in German by a Swiss surgeon, is printed on paper of high quality, and the print is large and the binding excellent. The material is divided into 10 parts, including injuries and diseases of the head, injuries and surgical conditions of the neck, thoracic surgery, abdominal surgery, urology (male), surgery of the spinal cord and vertebrae, general surgical conditions of the extremities, surgical diseases of bones and joints, injuries to bones and joints, and, as a final part, delirium tremens and a general philosophical discussion on the management of the dying patient. This last chapter is most appropriate to a textbook of surgery, although no other treatise of surgery has included such material. All the subjects are dealt with in an up-to-date manner. There is no bibliography, but frequent allusions by name are made to well-known contributors to the current surgical literature of Europe
