This work is a systematic instruction book for those practitioners and students who wish to learn the practice of the administration of anesthetics, and as well a reference book in doubtful cases. The book is divided into four parts; Part One is devoted to "Preliminary Considerations," which includes a discussion of the properties and impurities of the different anesthetics; the condition of the patient; the nature of the operation for which required; the selection and method of its administration; and the preparation of the patient.

Part Two. The methods of administration of each variety, separately considered.

Part Three treats of the management and treatment of accidents, and

Part Four of the condition of the patient after operation.

This book is extremely useful and is one of the few that is really called for by the necessities of the times.
