This is an expensive book, printed in large type on smooth paper, so that it appears especially well dressed and stylish. What it has to say is clear and to the point, and the illustrations are admirable. There seem to be enough differences between the roentgenologic observations on infants and those on persons in later life to make such a volume useful. It describes especially well the congenital defects and the diseases of bone with which internists—and radiologists, too, for that matter—who work with adults have little acquaintance. It is an excellent work of reference and deserves high praise.
