This monograph (and it is the first monograph, because of its outstanding importance, to be considered for review in these columns) places a nugget of highest possible assay in the hands of English-speaking otolaryngologists—more specifically those with special interest in problems of the internal ear and neurotology. For here is the clarification of all that Menière contended and all that he stood for in his contentions concerning vertigo and deafness arising from inner ear pathology.
In parallel columns are the original French text of Menière's own four papers together with Menière's report and commentary on the paper of Armand Trousseau delivered one week after Menière's own first paper had been presented before the Imperial Academy of Medicine on January 8, 1961, as a guest speaker, and Atkinson's exact, literal, but magnificently Englished translation. Thus anyone with an acquaintance with French can correlate instantly the two versions with lateral glances of
