This little volume is written from the view-point of the internist and not from that of the surgeon, although the major part of it deals with purely surgical subjects. The first two chapters, on "Meningitis" and "Thrombosis of the Cerebral Sinuses," respectively, are rather meager and not very satisfactory. The chapter on "Intracranial Abscess" is much better and some useful points may be found under "Differential Diagnosis." The author, not being a surgeon, does not take up the treatment but says, "The only possible treatment is operation, the management of which does not form part of this work." Omitting therefore such an important phase of the subject, the work must prove more or less unsatisfactory
