This book, comprising 351 pages and 135 illustrations, was primarily written for post-graduate students and practitioners and does not purport to be a complete treatise on the subjects embraced within its scope. The surgery of the nose, throat and ear has made such tremendous strides within the past ten years that the operations usually included in American text-books have failed to represent the true status of this field of surgery. It is to be regretted that the author did not describe all of the operative procedures of accepted value.
Some of the anatomic plates are new and of exceptional merit, while others are old and below the standard. The illustrations of the operative technic are conspicuous by their rarity, and those given are from very poor photographs of work on cadavers. The descriptions of nasal reflexes, grippe, and the eye in relation to the nasal sinuses, are excellent.
