As a justification for the compilation of this book, McMurtrie describes the dearth of references to books and papers on the care and treatment of crippled children in the catalogs in many of the libraries which he consulted. This was a matter of surprise also to the various librarians, who had not realized the meagerness of their lists on this subject. By dint of considerable hard work, much corresponding and considerable time, however, McMurtrie succeeded in gathering about 725 references, and they are set forth in alphabetical order and also in the form of an analytic index by which different phases of the subject of crippled children may be looked up. This book will be of great value to those persons taking a commendable interest in these handicapped members of society.
