Tillmanns' Surgery has been a standard work in Germany for many years, and the great popularity of the work has been well deserved. The English translation of the seventh edition by Drs. Tilton and Rogers places in the hands of those unable to read German a work of great value, and the labor of the translators will certainly be appreciated. The amount of space devoted to the subjects in this first volume is not only an indication of their importance, but also of the very thorough manner in which they are covered. It is unfortunate that such German works are only translated after another edition has appeared, or is about to appear in the original, so that the translation is always one edition behind; but notwithstanding this fact the translation of Tillmanns' Surgery is a very valuable addition to English surgical literature.
