This volume has been prepared specially as a practical guide to the general practitioner and medical student. The etiology, symptomatology, pathology and treatment of the various affections of the nose and throat are thoroughly discussed, yet with a conciseness that eliminates useless speculation on unimportant theories. The book opens with a chapter on the anatomy of the parts and closes with a list of prescriptions for convenience and ready reference. The Latin is occasionally wrong, as for instance, meati for meatus or the Anglicised form "meat-uses," on p. 512. The illustrations are numerous, while the colored plates appear to have been inserted with a view to being exact and instructive, rather than brilliantly beautiful as often is the case in representations of the mucous membrane. We unhesitatingly recommend the book.
