Twenty-five years ago, when Pierre Marie formulated his ideas about a chronic articular disease and called it spondylose rhizomélique, André Léri was his pupil and collaborator. Since that time Léri has not ceased to study diseases of the spinal column and has made valuable contributions to the knowledge of some of these diseases. The present book is the summation of his investigations and publications. It brings the subject fairly well down to date and is perhaps the best book I know of on this subject. However, the book is written from the standpoint of the internist and the neurologist. In no sense is it a surgical work, nor can it be said that it is a systematic treatise. It is rather a collection of valuable papers on various forms of spinal disease.
The first section, 215 pages, is devoted to anomalies and disorders of development. Perhaps the most interesting chapter
