Few works on this branch of medical soleaee are
equal to it, certainly none excel it, whether in regard
to theory or practice, and in one respect it Is superior
to all others, vis., in its statistical information, and
therefore, on these grounds a most valuable work for
the physician, student, or lecturer, all of whom will
find in It the information which they are seeking.—
Brii. Am. Journal.

The present treatise is very much enlarged and
amplified beyond the previous editions but nothing

hikH been added wkich could be well dispensed with.
An examination of the table of contents shows how
thoroughly the author has gone over the ground, and
the care he has taken in the text to presei^t the sub-
jects in all their bearings, will render this new edition
e^en more necessary to the obstetric student than
were either of the former editions at the date of their
appearance. No treatise on obstetrics with which we
are acquainted can compare favorably with this, in
respect to the amount of material which has been

?athered from every source.— So«ion Med. and Surg,

There is no better text-book for students, or work
of reference and study for the practising physician
than this. It should adorn and enrich every medical
library.— Chicago Med. Journal.

The on tinned favor, shown by the exhaustion of saooessiTe large editiooa of thia gr^ml work.

proves that it has snccessfally supplied a irant felt by American praotitionerB and stadenta. In the

present revision no pains have been spared by the author to bring it in every respect fnllj ap u

the day. To effect this a large part ol the work has been rewritten, and the whole enlaq^ed by

nearly one- fourth, notwithstanding which the priie has been kept at its former very moderaie

rate. By the use of a close, though very legible type, an unnraally laig« amount of mnUer ii

condensed in its pages, the two volumes containing as much as four or five ordinary oetAvoc.

This, combined with the most careful mechanical execution, and its very durable binding; raadert

it one of the cheapest works aooetslble to the profession. Every subject properly belonging to the

domain of surgery is treated in detail, so that the student who possesses this work may be Mid t«

on this important part uf medicine. — Boston Mtdical
and Surgical Joumal^ Mareh 28, 1865.

We have oompared It with most of onr standard
works, »nch as those of Erichsen, Miller, Feqpuson,
Byrne, and others, and we mast, in justice to our
author, award it the pre-eminence. As a work, com-
plete la almost every detail, no matter how ininaie
or trifling, and embracing every subjeot icnown in
the principles aad practice of sargery, we believe It
sUuds without a rival. Jl>r. Oross, ia his prefaee, re-
marlcs "my aim ha» been to embrace the whole do-
main of surgery, and to allot to every subject lib
legitimate claim to notice;" and, we assure our
readers, he has kept his word. It is a work which
we can most confidently recommend to our brethren,
for its utility is becoming the more evident the longer
it is upon the sbelvea of our llbrury.— (7ana<2a Med.
Journal^ September, 1865.

The first two editions of Professor Oross' System ef
Surgery are so well known to the profession, and so
highly prized, that it would be idle for us to speak in

This system of surgery is, we predict, destined to
take a commanding position in our surgical litera-
ture, and be the crowning glory of the author's ^eil
earned fame. As an authority on general surgical
sui)Ject8, this work is long to occapy a pre-eminent
place, not only at home, but abroad. We have no

language, and equal to the best sytsteaa of aoxysry ia

The work contains everything, minor aad majer,

extra cloth, $6 50; leather, raised bands, $7 50. {Just Issusd.)

The object of the author haa been to present, within' as condensed a compass as possible, a
complete treatise on Surgery in all its branches, suitable both as a text-book for the student and
ft work of reference for the practitioner. So much has of late years been done for the advance-
ment of Surgical Art and Science, that there seemed to be a want of a work which should present
the latest aspects of every subject, and which, by its American character, should render accessible
to the profession at large the experience of the practitioners of both hemispheres. This has been
the aim of the author, and it is hoped that the volume will be found to fulfil its purpose satisfac-
torily. The plan and general outline of the work will be seen by the annexed

*' The favorable reception with which the ' Science and Art of Surgery' has been honored br the
Surgical Profession in the United States of America has been not onlj a source of deep gratifies
tion and of just pride to me, but has laid the fbundation of many professioiiAl friendships that
are amongst the agreeable and valued recollections of my life.

"I have endeavored to make the present edition of this work more deserving than its predeeessor*
of the favor that has been accorded to them. In consequence of delays that liare unavoidably
occurred in the publication of the Sixth British Edition, time has been afforded to me to add to this
one several pnragraphs which I trust will be found to increase the praetieal value of the work."
LoN do:*, Oct. 1 S72.

On no former edition of this work has the anthor bestowed more pains to render it a complete and
satisfactory exposition of British Surgery in its modem aspects. Every portion has been sedu-
lously revised, and a large number of new illustrations have been introduced. In addition to the
material thus added to the English edition, the author has furnished for the American edition saeh
material as has accumulated since the passage of the sheets through the press in London, so that
the work as now presented to the American profession, contains his latest views and experienee.

The increase in the sise of the work has seemed to render necessary its division into two vol-
umes. Great care has been exercised in its typographical execution, and it is eonfidesily pre-
sented as in every respect worthy to maintain the high reputation which has rendered it a stand-
ard authority on this department of medical science.

beartily commend it to our friends, and think that

Review of Mto. and Pliarmacy^ August, 1873.

As a manual of the practice of surgery for the use
of tbe student, we do not hesitate to pronounce Mr.
Bryant's book ^ first-rate work. Mr. Bryant ha:* a
good deal of the dogmatic energy which goes with
the clear, pronounced opinions of a man who^e re-
flections and experience have moulded a character
not wanting in firmness and decision. At the same
time he teaches with the enthusiasm of one who has
fttlth in his teaching; he speaks as one having au-
thority, and herein lies the charm and excelleoce of
his work. He states the opinions of others freely

repeat what we stated at firot, that Mr. BryHnt's book
is one which we can conscientiously recommend both
to practitioners and students as an admirable work.
—Dublin Jonrn. of Med. Science, August, 1S73.

Mr. Bryant has long been known to the reading
portion of the profession nsan able, clear, and graphic
writer upon surgical subjects. The volume before
us is one eminently upon the practice of surgery and
not one which treats at length on surgical pathology,
though the views that are »nitertainod upon this *nb-
Ject are sufflcienily interspersed through the work
for all practical purposen. As a text-book we cheer-
fully recommend it, feeling convinced that, from the
subject-matter, and the concise and true way Mr.
Bryant deals with his* subject, it will prove a for-
midable rival among the numerouK surgical text-
books which are offered to the student. — Jf. ¥. Med.
Record, June, 1873.

This is, as the preface states, an entirely new book,
and contains in a moderately condensed form all the
surgical information necessary to a general practi-
tioner. It is written in a spirit consistent with the
present improved standard of medical and surgical
science. — American Journal of Obstetrics^ August,
