To most physicians Heberden is an eponym; they know of Heberden's nodes. Dr. Crummer has been at great pains to consult original manuscripts in England and he gives us a fine brief biography of Heberden, illustrations of the man, his manuscripts and his school, a reprinting of his great work and a smaller work on the breast, and an excellent bibliography. The work has been printed in part in the Annals of Medical History but the reprint is a volume worthy to grace any medical library of literary or historical pretensions.
