BOOK NOTICES.

General and Orthopaedic Surgery. SURGERY: ITS PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE. In five volumes. By 66 eminent surgeons. Edited by W. W. Keen, M.D., LL.D., Hon. F.R.C.S., England and Edinburgh; Professor of the Principles of Surgery and of Clinical Surgery, Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia. Volume II. Octavo of 920 pages, with 572 text-illustrations and nine colored plates. Philadelphia and London: W. B. Saunders Company, 1907. Per volume, cloth, $7 net; half morocco, $8 net.

The second volume of this excellent work has been received, and we can only repeat what we said on the plan and scope of the book when speaking of the first volume. This volume opens with a chapter on diseases of the bones, followed by one on fractures and dislocations. The surgery of the joints, contributed by Robert W. Lovett, M.D. (clinical part), pathology by Edward Hall Nichols, is especially complete and valuable to the surgeon. Another extremely practical chapter deals with the surgery of the skin and its appendages, by John A. Fordyce, M.D. The only criticism to be offered is a lack of detail in the directions for treating these various conditions. Dr. William G. Spiller edits that part of the work relating to the surgical disorders of the nervous system, and the closing chapters. upon the surgery of the spine are by Dr. George Woolsey. If the remaining volumes are as carefully prepared as the first two, the entire work will be of very great value to all who are interested in surgical diseases.

Pædiatrics.

THE TREATMENT OF DISEASES IN CHILDREN. By G. A. Sutherland, M.D., F.R.C.P., Physician to Paddington Green Children's Hospital, to the Northwest London Hospital and to the City Orthopaedic Hospital; late President Section for Diseases of Children, British Medical Association. Second impression. Henry Froude, Oxford University Press, Hodder & Stoughton, Warwick Square, E. C., London, 1907.

This excellent volume of the Oxford medical publications is a very practical and concise description of the treatment of diseases peculiar to infancy and childhood, which will undoubtedly be extremely useful to the young practitioner. It is of convenient size to slip into his pocket. during his daily round of calls, and therefore can be consulted more frequently than larger works. The treatment described is that of the author, without discoursive reference to other writers and other methods, but his practice is, of course, based on the teachings of the great masters of pædiatrics, and as such can be safely followed. W. M. C.

SKIN AFFECTIONS IN CHILDHOOD. By H. G. Adamson, M.D., M.R.C.P., Physician for Diseases of the Skin, Paddington Green Children's Hospital, and the Northeastern Hospital for Children. Illustrated. $2 net. London: Henry Froude, Oxford University Press, Hodder & Stoughton, Warwick Square, E. C., London.

This little book gives a very concise and accurate description of the skin diseases peculiar to childhood. It contains

some illustrations, which add to the value of the text. The treatment advised seems to be modern and sufficient. In prophylaxis and hygiene the book is very valuable. An excellent feature is the convenient size of the book, which can be easily carried about by the busy general practitioner, for whom it is intended. The type is clear and margins adequate. W. M. C. AN INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF THE INFANT'S STOOL. By Paul Selter, M.D., Solingen, Germany. Translated by Herbert M. Rich, B.L., M.D., Detroit. Twenty-five cents; by mail, 30 cents. The Detroit Medical Journal Co., Detroit, Mich.

This pamphlet of 28 pages is a most comprehensive treatment of the subject from the normal stool through the various gradations caused by the varied diets to which infants are obliged to submit, and the remedy for correcting many abnormalities is clearly given. It is the best paper on the subject in the English language, and we are greatly indebted to Dr. Rich for his admirable translation. FUNCTIONAL NERVOUS DISORDERS IN CHILDHOOD. By Leonard G. Guthrie, M.A., M.D., F.R.C.P., Senior Physician to Paddington Green Children's Hospital; Physician to the Hospital for Epilepsy and Paralytic, Maidavale. Henry Froude, Oxford University Press, Hodder & Stoughton, Warwick Square, E. C., London, 1907. This excellent book emphasizes the truism that the neurotic child is the father of the neurotic adult, many neurotic ailments being the outcome of the so-called emotional temperament, so prevalent in these days. The contents of the volume consist chiefly of the author's lectures and addresses rearranged and and rewritten. They constitute an extremely valuable

addition to the knowledge of diseases of childhood through a study of childhood itself. The chapters on the moral failing of neurotic children and on effects of emotion in childhood are illuminating. The one on mental and educational overstrain is great. W. M. C.

Materia Medica and Therapeutics. PHARMACOLOGY AND THERAPEUTICS. By Reynold Webb Wilcox, M.A., M.D.. LL.D., Professor of Medicine at the New York Post-Graduate Medical School and Hospital; Consulting Physician to the Nassau Hospital; Visiting Physician to St. Mark's Hospital; ExPresident of the American Therapeutic Society; Chairman of the Revision. Committee of the United States Pharmacopoeia, etc. Seventh edition, revised, with Index of Symptoms and Diseases. P. Blakeston's Son & Co., Philadelphia, 1907.

This is a companion book to "Materia Medica and Pharmacy," by the same author and publisher, and together the two volumes form a very complete presentation of the whole subject of materia medica and therapeutics of the present time. The volume under review gives clearly and accurately the action, toxicology and

therapeutics of the drugs in common use.

It is conservative and contains no fads.
