This work comprises the transactions, papers and discussions of the Eleventh Congress of Surgery, held at Paris in October last by the Association Frančaise de Chirurgie. The questions which were discussed at this session were, first, "Contusions of the Abdomen," and, second, "The Indications for Operation and Treatment of Cancer of the Rectum." In addition to the numerous communications and discussions which belonged to the program there were also many volunteer papers presented by the members of the congress on interesting surgical cases. An examination of the volume shows conclusively that, from the standpoint of efficient surgery, the French surgeon still keeps on as high a plane as other leading surgeons of the world.

The Twelfth Congress will be held at Paris by the Faculté de Médecine on Monday, Oct. 17, 1898, under the presidency of Prof. Le Dentu.
