This book on the foot is mostly concerned with the practical aspects of the care of the feet, including hygiene as well as the various diseases and deformities from which human beings suffer. The illustrations, which are numerous, add greatly to the value of the text, which is simple and direct. The author reflects here considerable experience both in this country and abroad, covering more than 2,000 cases seen in the author's private practice. While the volume is entitled "Diseases of the Foot," it is concerned equally with fractures and dislocations involving the foot and ankle. The work is one of the best monographs available on the subject with which it is concerned.
