The chapter on the nose and the throat consists of 7 pages and gives a sketchy outline of nasal examination, induction of anesthesia, procedures in the treatment of fracture of the nasal bones, nasal hemorrhage, foreign bodies and tonsillar abscess and tonsillectomy. The chapter on the ear consists of 9 pages and covers the following: removal of wax, syringing for debris, removal of foreign bodies from the meatus, treatment of furunculosis, inflation of the middle ear (Valsalva's method, Politzer's method and catheterization of the eustachian tube) and myringotomy.

It is the opinion of this reviewer that this text is not to be recommended to otolaryngologists, for each reader of the Archives of Otolaryngology will welcome only a text that is authoritative, comprehensive, informative and functional.
