The popularity of this book is attested by the fact that since its first appearance in 1892, it has gone through eight additional publications. The new edition has been thoroughly revised, many new illustrations have been added, and the text has been brought up-to-date. Many of the old illustrations have been replaced by modern ones. This handy little volume of some 500 pages covers the entire field of surgery in a somewhat condensed but otherwise satisfactory manner so far as the student is concerned. In conformity with the older textbooks, part one consists of "Ligature of Arteries." The importance of this procedure in the light of modern surgery is probably secondary. This particular chapter could be left out. The print and the illustrations are satisfactory.
