The convenient size, large print, the many good illustrations and a splendid text combine to make this book a welcome addition to the surgeon's library. It is written concisely but clearly, and the field is covered fairly well. The work of American surgeons receives the attention it deserves, although so well-known and popular an operation as the Andrews imbrication in connection with inguinal hernia is not mentioned. The usual division of the subjects treated is made. The closing chapter on anesthesia is good. It is short but gives much valuable information. Whether or not it should have a place in a book of this kind is open to question.
