During the six years that have elapsed since the appearance of the last edition of this work, the most marked advances in otology have been made in the physiology and the pathology of the internal ear, the surgery of labyrinthine disease and of intracranial lesions of otitic origin. In the new edition will be found a description of the recent investigations for the examination of the static function of the labyrinth. The technic of the operative treatment of labyrinthine suppuration has been considered in detail. The chapters dealing with brain abscess and intracranial surgery are practically new and give the results of the clinical experience of the author and numerous other observers.
New material has been added on various subjects throughout the text, which brings the work thoroughly up to date. The new material is of the same high standard that has characterized the former editions of this well-known text-book.
