This volume is the outgrowth of a need for such a work felt by the author when young in the practice of medicine. The obstacles in the way of broad clinical study and bedside demonstration in such dangerous and highly communicable diseases as variola, scarlatina, and rubeola render it hazardous and in many instances impracticable to impart sufficient instruction to undergraduates. The work, therefore, that gives photographic reproductions true to nature will be most beneficial to students and general practitioners. The author has by his practical presentation of these diseases and by the introduction of color plates given the profession a very useful book. There are some valuable suggestions also in the appendix relative to disinfecting rooms and clothing. He also gives some valuable formulae for various cleansing solutions for the use of patients.
Diseases Of The Nose, Pharynx, And Ear. By Henry Gradle, M. D., Professor of Ophthalmology and Otology, Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago. Handsome octavo of 547 pages, profusely illustrated, including two full-page plates in colors. Philadelphia and London: W. B. Saunders & Co., 1902. Cloth, $3.50 net.
This volume is intended to present diseases of the Nose, Pharynx and Ear as the author has seen them during an experience of nearly twenty-five years. In it are .answered, in detail
those questions regarding the course and outcome of diseases which cause the less experienced observer the most anxiety in an individual case, questions to which an answer is not easily obtained from text-books. In the therapeutic part of the work the author has given detail only to those procedures which have withstood the test of critical experience. Topographic anatomy being a requisite for all surgical work, the author has wisely devoted liberal space to this branch of the subject. The numerous illustrations are exceptionally accurate in their portrayal of the pathologic conditions, especially so the two full-page colored plates. We know of no work of its size that is at the same time so useful a text-book and so excellent a work of reference.

No graduate in medicine is thoroughly equipped to practice his profession unless he be acquainted with at least the rudiments of the science of psychiatry. Broad though its domain and difficult of mastery, yet every one may readily acquire knowledge of those principles upon which depend a successful treatment of those cases of mental disorder that form a part of every physician's practice.
This work, intended for the student and general practitioner, is an intelligible, up-to-date exposition of the leading facts of psychiatry, and will be found of invaluable service, especially to the busy practitioner unable to yield the time for a more exhaustive study. The work has been rendered more practical by omitting elaborate case records and pathologic details, as well as discussions of speculative and controversial questions. Certain special features of the work, also broadening its field of usefulness, are the mention of the forms of insanity not usually met with in hospitals, and the including of a comparative table of classification and a chapter on some of the ethical questions re
