This book of over 500 pages dealing with the pharnyx is a good instance of the geographical type of textbook so popular nowadays. One finds, for example, a chapter on the pharnyx and blood diseases, in which are discussed the oral and pharangeal evidences of hemophilia, leukemia, infectious mononucleosis, agranulocytosis, etc. This sort of material rubs shoulders with the technique of tonsillectomy, infections of the neck, and roentgen examinations of the pharnyx. The reviewer will not attempt to criticize the logic of this sort of a compilation. There is certainly a great deal of useful material, and the book is profusely and well illustrated.
