This monograph presents roentgenograms and photographs of Schmorl's anatomic pathological studies. The clinical and radiologic aspects of the spine in health and disease are presented by Junghanns. In preparing this material and various papers which he has written on the human spine, the author is said to have studied 10,000 spines removed at autopsy. These were examined as gross specimens, by radiographs and in microscopic sections. This is probably the finest and most valuable treatise in the world on the pathology of the human spine. It describes the clinical symptoms and findings which are associated with the pathological conditions described. The extensive bibliography is a valuable contribution.
