As an atlas portraying roentgenograms with full descriptions and systematic discussions this book is most creditable, outclassing previous works on this topic in the roentgen literature and equaling the best atlases on other roentgen subjects. While the major number of diseases considered are parallel to conditions also found in the adult and are modified only in their interpretation by the immature anatomy of the child's chest, considerable space is given to conditions most commonly found at an early age as well as those peculiar to childhood. Its illuminating treatment of the whole category of diseases of the chest gives the book instant and lasting appeal not only to the specialist in pediatrics and the roentgenologist but also to the general practitioner who has learned the unusual value of roentgen diagnosis afforded in so many diseases of the chest.
