A second edition of the textbook by Dr. Lederer and his associates is just off the press. Its appearance, slightly less than a year since the first publication, proves the popularity of the first edition.
The work retains the general arrangement of the first edition: the division of the subject matter into five sections; the fine presentation of the material in a style that makes for easy reading; the treatment of details of anatomy, pathology, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment with such literary effectiveness as to compress an enormous amount of material into 840 pages; the arrangement of the page in two columns, and the diagrams, sketches, schemata, histologic studies and photomicrographs.
Some of the sections were corrected, and various changes were made in the chapters on anatomy in order to present certain features more clearly. Improvement was made in the illustrative material.
Here and there some changes were made
