This volume, edited by C. C. Choyce in collaboration with a number of notable English surgeons, is on a par with the two preceding volumes. The text is well written, the illustrations illuminating. The contributions are clear and concise, setting forth the essential features of the subjects under discussion. Perusal of the various chapters shows that the latest contributions to surgical knowledge have not been overlooked, while at the same time a certain conservatism is shown in avoiding the recommendation of methods of treatment which have not become recognized procedures by surgeons in general. As a student's text-book and as a work of reference this system of surgery cannot be too highly recommended.
