This is the most satisfactory book that has ever been written on congenital clubfoot. The author has selected everything that is essential to his subject and has stated it clearly. He has omitted the immaterial things.

The text consists of a historical survey of the literature, the nature of the deformity, the normal and pathologic anatomy, the etiology and the methods of treatment with results.

The author emphasizes the fact that the deformity resists correction, because of the dislocation of the scaphoid downward and mediad, and he gives details of his open operative technic to correct the dislocation and thereby correct the deformity.

The book is printed on good paper with good type.
