This edition of Buck's excellent manual on diseases of the ear is well adapted for the use of students and general practitioners. A new chapter entitled "Analysis of Symptoms" has been added, and the section on chronic purulent inflammation of the middle ear has been re-written. The new chapter on "Analysis" occupies fifteen pages and it will be found extremely useful in diagnosis. "The list of these symptoms," says the author, "is not very long; it comprises impairment of the hearing, subjective noises, the phenomenon of hearing better in the midst of noise, the sensation of something moving in the head when the head is moved, a sensation of fullness in the ear, unnatural resonance of one's voice in the affected ear, pulsation or throbbing, itching, soreness or pain, painful mastication, discharge from the outer canal, dizziness, numbness, and possibly one or two others."
