This is a very neat and comprehensive little volume of about 90 pages. Most of the illustrations are from the justly popular retouched photographs, while certain necessary outline diagrams are added where they can better elucidate the subject. The text is strictly limited to the scope expressed in the title, and the author has shown considerable restraint in carefully avoiding any suggestion of surgical application of the abundant material furnished, contenting himself with adhering to the original special purpose and maintaining the handy size of his volume. It is a very convenient book for the student and the busy practitioner.
