In this second edition the author has omitted a number of operations on the prostate which were described in the previous one and were chiefly of historic interest. Those which he retains he says he knows are of practical value. The book therefore, will stand as giving his recommendation to the measures it includes. We notice that he speaks highly of orchidectomy, but sees little results from vasectomy, which has been lately favored by some prominent writers. In the main, however, the work is one that could be accepted by the profession, not merely on the authority of its author, but as a sensible, practical treatise on the subject.
