The work is divided into three parts, of which part first is devoted to the anatomy and physiolgy of the digestive organs, methods and technics of diagnosis; Part 2, to the therapy and materia medica of stomach diseases; Part 3, to the gastric clinic.

The work is completely scientific, modern, accurate and creditable. There is one defect in it, however, which must strike the average reader with regret, and that is that the references are, with exceptions, foreign; work done in our own country escapes with scant mention. For example, under the head of foreign bodies in the stomach, a number of cases of hair ball are recorded all from foreign journals, while the one published in this journal (Vol. xxvi, page 199) by Allen, is unnoticed. Notwithstanding this defect, the book is an excellent one and stands fully abreast with the German works on this subject. We commend it.
