The oomprehensiye treatise of Hamilton is now recognized on both sides of the Atlantic as
one of the most yaluable text-books on injuries of bones and tendons. — London Med. Time$
and Gazette, Aug. 1, 1868.

Should be carefully read by erery student of surgery.— i\r. F. M«d. Gaz., Oct. 17, 1868.

In fUness of detail, simplicity of arrangement^ and accuracy of description, this work
fltands nnriyalled. So far as we know, no other work on the subject in the English language
can be compared with it. While congratulating our trans -Atlantic brethren on the European
reputation which Dr. Hamilton, along with many other American surgeons, has attained, we
mlso may be proud that, in the mother tongv€, a classical work has been nroduced which need
not fear comparison with the standard treatises of any other nation. — JEainburgh Med, Jour-
nal, Dec. 1866.

The credit of giring to the profession the only complete practical treatise on firactures and
dislocations in our language during the present century, belongs to the author of the work
before us, a distinguished American professor of surgery ; and his book adds one more to the
list of excellent practical works which have emanated from his country, notices of which have
appeared from time to time in our columns during the last few months. — London Lancet,
Deo. 15, 1866.

These additions make the work much more yaluable, and it must be accepted as the most
complete monograph on the subject, certainly in our own, if not even in any other language
— American Journal of Med, Sciences, Jan. 1867.

This is one of those exhaustiye books tlbat students hare to *' get up'' with a yiew of being
equal to anything that an accomplished and subtle examiner may inquire about. It is the
sort of work that general practitioners like to haye on their bookshelyes, as a reference, to
consult when any case that they may not quite understand, happens to come across their paths.
In America, at any rate, it is justly considered to be the standard work on these points of
surgery. The fact of a third edition of such a large work being called for, although only
seyen years haye elapsed since the appearance of the first, is sufficient eyidence of its being
much required. It is used as a text-book in many American schools, and it speaks well for
the thorough system pursued at these seats of learning, that a work which contains such an
immense amount of information should be used in this manner. — London Medical Mirror,
Feb. 1867.

This great work does not admit of criticism on our part, nor will the limits of a bibliogra-
phical notice suffice to giye it the just measure of praise. It is the standard of medical lite-
rature on this subject. The mere announcement of its title will place it at once where it
deserves to be— in the front rank of medical publications. As a work, complete upon the
subject, it must eyer be one of reference ,* it is replete with erudition, and a monument of the
industry and ability of the author.— iS^. Louis Med. Reporter, Noy. 1866.

Prof. Hamilton, whose work, eyer since its first appearance, has taken rank both at home
and abroad as the best monograph upon the subjects treated of, in the English language, pre-
sents us with the third edition, in which, to the former rich stores of information, he adds the
latest adyances in these branches of surgical Bownee.— -Detroit Review of Medicine, Dec. '66.

The work has met with such uniyersal approval that it is yain to attempt here any formal
reyiew of it. No medical library or intelligent practitioner should be without a copy. We
cordially recommend it to the profession as the most complete work to which the surgeon can
refer for information on the subject of firactures and dislocations.— *TAe Savamtah Journal
of Medicine, Noy. 1866.

Dr. Hamilton's treotise still holds its place without a rival as the very best on the import-
ant subjects of which it treats. It has now reached its third edition in the seventh year of its
existence, evidence enough of its general appreciation by the medical profession. On a former
occasion we spoke quite freely of the merits of this important work, and we need therefore
only say now, that the present edition is an improvement on the first two. It well sustains
the reputation which the previous editions have earned. — The Boston Med. and Surg. Jour-
nal, Dec. 6, 1866.

We have received a new (the third) edition of Prof. Prank H. Hamilton's most admirable
Treatise on Fractures and Dislocations. As a good practical treatise, this work has no equal
in the English language, and in view of the serious pecuniary responsibility assumed in these
days by those who undertake the treatment of fractures and dislocations, we do not see how
any practitioner can afford to be without it in his lihrtaj.^^ Cincinnati Journal of Medicine,
Deo. 1866.

We regard this as one of the most yaluable and interesting works which have issued from
the American press. — Canada Med. Journal, Nov. 1866.

The perfect storehouse of appliances which are described and illustrated, renders it cer-
tainly the most complete work of the kind in this country, and perhaps there is nothing supe-
rior to it in any language. Hamilton's treatise is destined to rank for a long while as the
leading authority on this subject, and we commend it once more to oar readers with more
than usual pleasure. — Cincinnati Lanea and Observer, Nor. 1866.

A SYSTEM OP SURGERY ; Pathological, Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Ope-
rative. By Sahuel D. Gross, M.D., Professor of Surgery in the Jefferson Medical College
of Philadelphia. Ilinstrated by upwards of Thirteen Hundred Engrarings. Fonitli edilMs,
carefully revised and improved. In two large and beautifully printed royal octavo TolwMi
of 2200 pages, strongly bound in leather, with raised bands. $15.

The continued favor, shown by the exhaustion of successive large editions of this gnat tnrkt
proves that it has successfully supplied a want felt by American practitioncn aad atodeBts.
Though but little over six years have elapsed since its first publication, it has already reached
its fourth edition, while the care of the author in its revision and correction has kept it ia a
constantly improved shape. By the use of a dose, though very legible type, an unovaally lar^^e
amount of matter is condensed in its pages, the two Tolumes contidning as much as four or live
ordinary octavos. This, combined with the most careful mechanical execution, and its Tciy
durable binding, renders it one of the cheapest works accessible to the profession. Every mah-
ject properly belonging to the domain of surgery is treated in detail, so that the stadent who
possesses this work may be said to have in it a surgical library.

In asking the attentioD of the profession to the works contained in the following
pages, the publisher would state that no pains are spared to secure a continuance of
^he confidence earned for the publications of the house by their careful selection and
accuracy and finish of execution.

The printed prices are those at which books can generally be supplied by booksellers
throughout the United States, who can readily procure for their customers any works
not kept in stock. Where access to bookstores is not convenient, books will be sent
by maU post-paid on receipt of the price, but no risks are assumed either on the
money or the books, and no publications but my own are supplied. Gentlemen will
therefore in most cases find it more convenient to deal with the nearest bookseller.

An Illustbated Catalogue, of 64 octavo pages, hanAomely printed, will be for-
warded by mail, postpaid, on receipt of ten cents.

It is manifest that only a very wide circulation can enable so vast an aiiount of '
valuable practical matter to be supplied at a price so unprecedentedly low. The pub-
Usher, therefore, has much gratification in stating that the rapid and steady increase
in the subscription list promises to render the enterprise a permanent one, tnd it is
with especial pleasure tnat he acknowledges the valuable assistance spontaneously
rendered by so many of the old subscribers to the "Journal/' who have kindly made
known among their friends the advantages thus offered and have induced them to
