This monograph, as the preface states, comprises material submitted for the Jacksonian Prize of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1933 and entitled "The Pathology, Diagnosis and Treatment of Localized Rarefying Changes in Bone as Exemplified by Legg-Perthes' Disease, Osgood-Schlatter's Disease, Kümmell's Disease and Related Conditions." The special material is preceded by eightyfour pages of general considerations—bone formation and physiology, pathology, roentgenology and so on. The special sections give the most intricate details of the subject of osteochondritis, there being separate sections, each with an extensive bibliography, on each bone. The whole work is intensive and scholarly, obviously of great importance to the specialist.
