This volume deals with the general infections not treated in Volume 1 and with the diseases of the abdominal organs. The selection of material covers a wide range of medical literature. The abstracts are so arranged as to afford a systematic view of each subject. Much attention is given to the results of physiologic investigation. Comparatively little of the individual experience of the editors appears in this volume except as incorporated in the general remarks. Occasional errors have crept into the work. We note that the figure illustrating acute dilatation of the stomach is credited by a typographical error to Broadhurst instead of Borchardt. The book contains a good account of the year's advance.
