Per part :


This work furnishes a survey of the properties of bacteria, together with the causes of disease, disposition, and immunity, reference being constantly made to an appendix of bacteriologic technic. The special part gives a complete description of the important varieties, the less important ones being mentioned when worthy of notice. The lithographic plates, as in all this series, are accurate representations of the conditions as actually seen, and this collection, if anything, is more handsome than any of its predecessors. As an aid in original investigation the work is invaluable.


American Journal of the Medical Sciences

“Practically all the important organisms are represented, and in such a variety of forms and cultures that any other atlas would rarely be needed in the ordinary hospital laboratory.”

The Lancet, London

“We have found the work a more trustworthy guide for the recognition of unfamiliar species than any with which we are acquainted.”

Zuckerkandl and DaCosta's

Operative Surgery

Second Edition, Revised and Greatly Enlarged

Atlas and Epitome of Operative Surgery, By Dr. O. ZUCKERKANDL, of Vienna. Edited, with additions, by J. CHALMERS DACOSTA, M. D., Professor of the Principles of Surgery and Clinical Surgery, Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia. With 40 colored plates, 278 text-cuts, and 410 pages of text. Cloth, $3.50 net.


In this new edition the work has been brought precisely down to date. The revision has not been casual, but thorough and exhaustive, the entire text having been subjected to a careful scrutiny, and many improvements and additions made. A number of chapters have been practically rewritten, and of the newer operations, all those of special value have been described. The number of illustrations has also been materially increased. Sixteen valuable lithographic plates in colors and sixty-one text-figures have been added, thus greatly enhancing the value of the work. There is no doubt that the volume in its new edition will still maintain its leading position as a substitute for clinical instruction.


Philadelphia Medical Journal

“The names of Zuckerkandl and DaCosta, the fact that the book has been translated into 13 different languages, together with the knowledge that it is used in the United States Army and Navy, would be sufficient recommendation for most of us.”

Munchener Medicinische Wochenschrift

We know of no other work that combines such a wealth of beautiful illustrations with clearness and conciseness of language, that is so entirely abreast of the latest achievements, and so useful both for the beginner and for one who wishes to increase his knowledge of operative surgery.'

Each volume is edited, with additions, by a leading specialist

Dürck and Hektoen's Special Pathologic Histology

Atlas and Epitome of Special Pathologic Histology. By Dr. H. DÜRCK, of Munich. Edited, with additions, by Ludvig HEKTOEN, M. D., Professor of Pathology, Rush Medical College, Chicago. In Two Parts. Part I.-Circulatory, Respiratory, and Gastro-intestinal Tracts. I20 colored figures on 62 plates, and 158 pages of text. Part II.-Liver, Urinary and Sexual Organs, Nervous System, Skin, Muscles, and Bones. 123 colored figures on 60 plates, and 192 pages of text. Per part : Cloth, $3.00 net.


The colored lithographs of this volume are beautifully reproduced, and are extremely accurate representations of the microscopic changes produced by disease. The great value of these plates is that they represent in the exact colors the effect of the stains, which is of such great importance for the differentiation of tissue. The text portion of the book is admirable, and, while brief, it is entirely satisfactory in that the leading facts are stated, and so stated that the reader feels he has grasped the subject extensively. The work is modern and scientific, and altogether forms a concise and systematic view of pathologic knowledge.


William H. Welch, M. D.,

Professor of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore.

I consider Dürck's ' Atlas of Special Pathologic Histology,' edited by Hektoen, a very useful book for students and others. The plates are admirable. Frank B. Mallory, M. D.,

Assistant Professor of Pathology, Harvard University Medical School, Boston.

“ The information is presented in a very compact form ; it is carefully arranged, briefly and clearly stated, and almost always represents our latest knowledge of the subject.”

Not only is the student made acquainted with carefully prepared ophthalmoscopic drawings done into well-executed lithographs of the most important fundus changes, but, in many instances, plates of the microscopic lesions are added. It furnishes a manual of the greatest possible service.

The Lancet, London

“We recommend it as a work that should be in the ophthalmic wards or in the library of every hospital into which ophthalmic cases are received.”

The Medical Record, New York

“The work is excellently suited to the student of ophthalmology and to the practising physician. It cannot fail to attain a well-deserved popularity.”

D., Professor of Obstetrics and Clinical Midwifery, Cornell University Medical School. 14 lithographic plates in colors; 139 other cuts ; in pages of text. $2.00 net.

The book presents the act of parturition and the various obstetric operations in a series of easily understood illustrations. These are accompanied by a text that treats the subject from a practical standpoint. Dublin Journal of Medical Science, Dublin

One fault Professor Schäffer's Atlases possess. Their name, and the extent and number of the illustrations, are apt to lead one to suppose that they are merely atlases,' whereas the truth really is they are also concise and modern epitomes of obstetrics.”

Schäffer & Edgar's Obstetric

Diagnosis and Treatment

This book treats particularly of obstetric operations, and, besides the wealth of beautiful lithographic illustrations, contains an extensive text of great value. This text deals with the practical, clinical side of the subject. New York Medical Journal

“ The illustrations are admirably executed, as they are in all of these atlases, and the text can safely be commended, not only as elucidatory of the plates, but as expounding the scientific midwifery of to-day.”

These are the famous “ Lehmann medicinische Handatlanten”
