This work is well arranged from a practical as well as from a clinical standpoint. The author first considers the physiology and pharmacology of anesthetics; second, the selection of the anesthetic and the preparation of the patient; third, the methods of administration of the various anesthetics and their mixtures and sequences; fourth, the accidents and dangers liable to be associated with surgical anesthesia and their prevention and treatment; fifth, the postoperative dangers of anesthetics. Hewitt apparently favors the closed method of giving ether which has fallen somewhat into disfavor in this country. Considerable space is given to the method of administering nitrous oxid.
