This edition is a half larger and contains a third more illustrations than the first edition, issued only nine years ago. Comparison of this with the earlier editions shows, in text, bibliography, and pictures, thorough assimilative revision and supplementation. The regional plan (with some general chapters), the conservative orthopedic scope, the inclusion of statistics, the annotation by exact references, the consideration of treatment chiefly by local means—operation, apparatus, and posture and exercise—and the representative rather than the personal attitude are retained. The book, therefore, continues to be peculiarly valuable, and this edition makes it again standard.
