This attractive little book of ninety pages presents the author's personal observation of over three hundred cases of the disorder. The bulk of the work is given up to a concise statement of symptoms, signs, pathology, prognosis and local treatment, and a brief display of cases from the author's clinical records. The thirty-six cuts are excellent in drawing, but the coloring is somewhat exaggerated, a criticism, however, which is applicable to the vast majority of colored plates made to represent the mucous membrane, normal, and the seat of various degrees of inflammation. The author has included an instructive tabulation of his 329 cases. The book is an addition to the literature of the subject, because it is a result of personal experience and not a mere repetition of the work of others.
