The significance of the sculptures of Tait McKenzie for the physician lies in two points of view. He is primarily a scientist educated in medicine, and from the first he has been interested in the development of fine physical bodies. These two interests are apparent in all of his sculpture, which includes not only extraordinary replicas of athletic action but numerous items of medical interest. His sculptures of effort and muscle action are considered models in their fields. The presentation of his work in this book is as handsome as the work itself merits. The type and the illustrations represent the finest qualities of typographic display.
