This work is divided into Part I, having pages 1 to 250, and Part II, with pages 1 to 296, which method of paging appears awkward to the reader. A large amount of information is gathered together, but the negligent proofreading is "an eyesore." For instance there occur in Part I the following: Drganic, p. 15; portible battery, p. 59; seperate, p. 73; accumilator, p. 79; vacuua, p. 97; ulner nerve, p. 127; in Part II, lemoderma (leucoderma?), p. 259, but lemorderma in the index; pruritis, p. 260; lumpus vulgaris, p. 263. It contains a detailed account of the Bottini operation for prostatic hypertrophy.
