This atlas was prepared by six surgeons; five were staff associates and one was a colleague of the late Dr. Ellison. It is most appropriately dedicated to Dr. Robert M. Zollinger. The legends are brief and very practical. The artwork is superb. The common operations are all included and the clinical applications seem sound and thoroughly worthwhile. Some of the operations appear almost too technically detailed, as many extra drawings are employed to gradually develop the progress of the procedure. This is mentioned, not as any stern criticism, but as a suggestion which might possibly have reduced the size and, obviously, the expense of the volume.

In general, the legends presented on pages facing the drawings are clear, concise, and devoid of tiresome detail. They are well suited to the visual aid so aptly presented. Alternative methods are mentioned occasionally and safeguards are presented where they seem appropriate.
