THE SURGERY OF THE EAR. By Samuel J. Kopetzy, M.D., Attending Otologist New York City Children's Hospitals and Schools and to the Red Cross Hospital; Assistant Surgeon and Instructor in Operative Surgery of the Ear, Manhattan Eve, Ear and Throat Hospital; Pathologist and Surgeon, New York Throat, Nose and Lung Hospital, etc. New York: Rebman Company. 1908. Cloth, $4.
This superbly illustrated volume of 368 pages is, as far as we know, the only work in the English language which is exclusively devoted to the surgery of the ear.
The anatomy of the ear, together with congenital malformations, the variations from normal adult conditions as found in young children and the surgical anatomy peculiar to each diseased condition are treated with great care and precision. The historical account of the various operations is also very interesting.
Every surgical operation has its full and complete description, and all possible complications are carefully considered.
It is doubtless true, as the author suggests, that the surgery of the ear will become a specialty, as distinguished from the general diseases of the ear, and this book is admirably adapted to such a condition.
The author's large experience especially fits him for the task he has undertaken so successsfully, and every practitioner of medicine should have the book, for it is to the general practitioner that these cases first present themselves.
DISEASES OF CHILDREN. By William Nelson Mundy, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics in the Eclectic Medical Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio. Second revised edition; illustrated; 8-vo; 512 pp.; cloth, $3. The Scudder Brothers Co., publishers, Cincinnati, Ohio. This book presents the eclectic system of infantile therapeutics and practice in a clear and concise manner, and in addition covers fairly well the etiology and pathology of the commoner diseases of children. The arrangement and style are much to be commended. The illustrations, while not over numerous, have been well chosen, and really illuminate the text. Every general practitioner will be the broader and abler physician for viewing diseases of children from all possible standpoints, and we commend this work as being useful even to those whose ideas as to the use of drugs are not consistent with eclectic principles. We are sorry to note the somewhat scanty reference to the antitoxin treatment of diphtheria, but still the author admits the use of antitoxin "has revolutionized the treatment of diphtheria."
