The June number of this series is a volume of 350 pages, entirely devoted to "General Orthopedics, including Surgical Operations," by Dr. August Schreiber, Surgeon-in-Chief of the Augsburg Hospital. This is a work of great interest and is rendered particularly valuable by reason of the large number of its illustrations descriptive of deformities and deformity apparatus. The bibliographical references are extremely numerous, and much attention has evidently been given by the author to the recent works of American and English writers. The following chapter headings will serve to give an idea of the scope of the work:
Chap. 1. General Orthopedics. Surgical Orthopedic Operations.
Chap. 2. Rachitis.
Chap. 3. Torticollis.
Chap. 4. Deformities of the Spinal Column. Deformities of the Thorax.
Chap. 5. Orthopedic Affections of the Extremities.
Chap. 6. Contractures of the Foot.
Chap. 7. Deformities of the Toes.
Chap. 8. Paralytic Deformities.
Chap. 9. Orthopedic Affections following Fractures
