This manual, written for students, furnishes in a very compact form all the information they need about the anatomy, physiology and the diseases of the ear. To impress upon the student the close relation of the upper air passages to aural diseases, the author has added a chapter on adenoid growths, enlarged tonsils and diseases of the nasal passages. The book is well written, small and inexpensive and undoubtedly will become popular with the students. It is profusely illustrated, and contains a colored plate representing a brain abscess. If colored plates at all, we should think in a manual of otology a series of colored pictures representing the drumhead in health and disease would certainly be far more appropriate than the picture of a brain abscess.
