The foreword presents the associate contributors, among whom are Professor Ségura, of Buenos Aires, who wrote a chapter on grippal laryngitis, and Dr. Robert Rendu, of Lyon, who wrote an interesting chapter on laryngocele, its diagnosis and treatment. The introduction is unusual, as it discusses laryngology of the past, the present and the future. Treating the historical background, discussing the accomplishment of present methods in diagnosis and treatment and speculating about the future of laryngology, it prepares the reader for a pleasant study of the remainder of the book.
The volume is in three parts. The first is devoted to the examination of the larynx. The chapter on mirror laryngoscopy is well presented, and the one on direct laryngoscopy is by Haslinger himself. Only his own method is considered. The distally lighted instrumentarium of Jackson is ignored. The only instrument shown is one of the first esophagoscopes, devised thirty-five years
