In the introduction to his book, the author, after giving a brief historical description of the Röntgen rays, calls attention to their great value in the management of fractures, and mentions those in which the use of the rays is especially valuable as a diagnostic measure. By their use accuracy takes the place of ignorance and doubt, and painful manipulations cease to be necessary for diagnostic purposes. In Part I, is considered the classification of fractures, and the general process of repair and treatment. In Part II, is taken up in detail the management of the special fractures. The author's method of presenting the subject is simple, practical and easy of comprehension. There is a liberal supply of illustrations to graphically assist the reader in a thorough understanding of the text. The common, and many of the rare fractures, are represented skiagraphically. Practically all of the illustrations are new.
