This book, originally published in 1886, has been enlarged and largely rewritten. It contains much which is of interest, but not easily accessible to the general practitioner. The chapter on arthritis treats not only of tuberculosis, but also of syphilitic, gonorrheal, septic, rheumatic and gouty arthritis deformans, Charcot's disease of the joints, and many other joint diseases and disabilities. While the book is written from the standpoint of the general surgeon, by a man of experience, and is of positive value, it contains little or nothing of value on the mechanical treatment of joint diseases.
