This is a carefully prepared and satisfactory text-book of an advanced type and original character. Laboratory diagnosis is considered first, followed by chapters on the application of x-rays in surgical diagnosis, inflammation, complications and sequels of trauma and tumors. Then come the systems; skin, blood-vessels, lymph-vessels and glands, muscles, tendons and bursæ, bones and joints and nervous system. Finally the body is taken up regionally, in the conventional order, starting with the head, face and neck, following with the different regions of the trunk, the extremities, and ending with the genitourinary organs and gynecologic diagnosis.

The illustrations form an important feature of the work and are chosen for their instructiveness rather than for artistic embellishment. They are well reproduced, with the exception of a few x-ray half-tones whose teaching is lost in their present indistinctness.
