The last edition of this book was published in 1892, and many changes have taken place in the pathology of tumors, which have been mentioned in this volume, not included in its predecessors. The work has been greatly enlarged; almost rewritten.

The illustrations are mostly original, and the classification followed by the author is the last revision of the nomenclature of the Royal College of Physicians. Of considerable interest is the latest theory of the origin of the dermoid cyst by parthenogenesis, and Ruffer's description of his microbe of carcinoma.

The publisher has apparently spared no pains to secure the typographic excellence of the volume.
