This book is replete with roentgen illustrations of fractures. The author was trained by Böhler, who still conducts the Accident Hospital in Vienna. Ehalt conducts a similar hospital at Graz, which is the second largest city of Austria and a large industrial center. This book embraces about the same types of fractures as does Böhler's book but Ehalt seems to have omitted many of the Böhler touches of genius, especially the valuable Böhler lines for establishment of the correct restoration of contour in fractures of the os calcis. This book covers the fractures commonly encountered in home and industrial life. One shudders to think of the much larger book Ehalt might have produced if he had dealt with the bizarre and terrific injuries and fractures that American orthopedists in the large cities and the country physician encounter. Perhaps the better part of the book consists of the many follow-up roentgenograms
