This book is a summary of many well-known books on Diseases of the Nose and Throat, and of recent literature, but it contains nothing new, and the facts are not presented in a novel manner. It might be a handy book for physicians who wish now and then to brush up hastily on the diseases of which it treats, but it can not be especially recommended for those who desire precise information upon these subjects. The recommendation of a 10 per cent, solution of cocain for nasal anesthesia does not appear judicious. It is certain that many patients will be unpleasantly affected by this strength, and much weaker solutions are quite efficacious.
