This important (indexed) work fills a need which is appreciated by every one working in otolaryngology in which so many of the operative procedures are carried out with greater accuracy and greater safety to the patient under local rather than under general anesthesia. A complete bibliography setting forth the historic development of the use of local anesthetics in this special field has been compiled.

The well prepared chapter on technic, amply illustrated, will be of great value for men undertaking to work in this specialty.

Part II contains the valuable report of the committee on the disadvantages and advantages of the various local anesthetics in nose and throat, made to the Section of Laryngology, Otology and Rhinology of the American Medical Association, of which Dr. Emil Mayer is chairman.
