We have received the first four parts of this handsome work, which is published in a manner highly creditable to the well-known house of Lea Brothers & Co. The lithographs are executed by the Sinclairs, and it is needless to say are in the highest style of the art. The paper is superb, and the typography is exquisite.
There is no formal preface and the author commences part I by plunging directly into his subject. The publishers, however, have supplied a detached "prefaratory note" in which they say:
"As no clinic, however large, can furnish the necessary materials, the entire literature of the subjects has been searched for its best illustrations, and selections made with proper permission of living authors. These have been completed by numerous reproductions from a collection of original paintings from life, gathered by the Author during many years of practice."
