ABSTRACT

This is a concise presentation of the subject of surgery "for the undergraduate, whose crowded hours demand a manual stripped of verbiage and unessentials, and for the medical practitioner who seeks a guide to present day surgery." This purpose has been admirably carried out. Discussion of theories and intricate details are conspicuous by their absence, while the more important and proved facts of surgery are expressed in clear and terse sentences that carry conviction to the student. Perhaps a more liberal employment of heavy type and a system of numbering in one, two, three order, of the more important points in etiology, pathology, symptoms, etc., might have aided the student in assimilating the facts presented. The illustrations are well executed, numerous, and many of them new, serving excellently in elucidating the subjects under discussion. Taken all together, this little manual should find many warm friends among undergraduate students.
