The profession will welcome a revision of a book that is considered by many to be a classic. The fact that this is the ninth edition attests its popularity. It has been entirely reset and, in part, reillustrated. The author's aim was to teach surgical principles through the medium of anatomic relations. Many of the sections have been rewritten, notably the surgical specialties. A few sections have not been rewritten and an excellent example is the part on extremities, which was so well written originally that few changes were indicated. Most of the illustrations were made from dissections made by the author, or under his direction. The frozen anatomic sections should be of considerable value to the student and surgeon. The reviser and his assistants have done a commendable piece of work. The book represents an excellent job of publishing and can be recommended highly.
