This book is just what the name would indicate. It is well illustrated both with actual photographs and with diagrams, and it is well fitted to meet the needs of one who wishes to find out something about the surgical conditions at this age. The author has paid especial attention to many of the rare conditions, surgical operations for which are detailed, many of them being operations with the author's own technic. Not only is operative technic given, but much in the way of orthopedic maneuvers and other treatments. For a book of this size and for a subject so comprehensive, the work is well done.
