This book possesses features common to all of the newer works on anesthesia. Considerable space is devoted to the requirements of dental surgery because the author is convinced that "it is probable that more work of this kind will fall to the practitioner as the serious sequelæ of oral sepsis become more clearly recognized." Nitrous oxid, chloroform, ether, chloroform and ether mixtures, and ethyl chlorid are the only anesthetics considered. The indications for their use, the after-treatment, prevention and treatment of surgical shock, are discussed, but nothing new is presented. The book is well illustrated.
