Those who are familiar with the large amount of experimental work on the heart and lungs which has been done by the author of this work will be very glad to have it all in book form. One finds here, however, not only the experimental work which in itself is very interesting, but also practically all that has thus far been accomplished in this comparatively newer field of operative surgery. The work is well illustrated by 87 plates, almost all of which are new and original, and the bibliography is very extensive, but so subdivided and distributed throughout the work as to facilitate ready reference to any particular subject. It is by experimental work that the borderline of surgery is constantly advanced, and one can not help but find in this work much that is of real value as well as of great interest.
