This the 13th edition of this classic text which first appeared in 1921. Each subsequent rendition has been amplified and updated, yet Sir Zachary has managed to retain the literary charm, crystalline brevity, and appropriate emphasis on bedside diagnosis which have epitomized all editions. This remains perhaps the most noteworthy surgical monograph of this generation; its appeal is universal.
