In spite of the fact that the gonococcus occupies a position of the "very first rank as a cause of ill health and disability," the subject of gonorrhea in its entirety is seldom given due consideration. In this book every phase of the subject, from bacteriology to urethroscopy, and from the simplest to the most complicated infections in the male or female, has been carefully and instructively compiled. With the authors on the continent, it is interesting to read, the preference in the treatment of gonorrhea is the grand "lavation" method. Important references are incorporated in the work and are balanced by the author's own opinions and observations. For a "latest" book, there is unpardonable brevity in the discussion of vaccine and serum therapy, so that no definite conclusion can be formed as to its value.
