This excellent work which includes regulation of teeth, treatment of nasal obstruction, prognathism, displacement of teeth, injuries of the face, etc., is based almost entirely on American methods of procedure. The appliances and their adjustment are distinctly American and the author (unlike many American authors) has given due credit for them.

The work is recommended to all German-reading students who are considering
