For many years, too, we have been so accustomed to the keen pleasure afforded by the investigations of histologic structure by Policard that little surprise is excited from the excellence of the accounts here of the normal structure, evolution and significance of bone, of the physicochemical basis of ossification, and of the mechanism of resorption of bone. The chapters on the changes in transplanted bone, heterotopic ossification and repair of fractures have great practical value.
