This volume presents the same attractive features we have come to expect in this series. It has 282 pages and eighty-nine illustrations, and contains very much of the American orthopædic literature for the year. Club-foot, especially as to its treatment, receives the most extended consideration, and the diverse views may be summed up as follows: The treatment of congenital club-foot should be commenced immediately after birth, and should consist of frequent stretching by hand and retention by some simple brace or plastic dressing. Many cases can be fully corrected by the time the child comes to walk; then a retention walking brace should be used for from one to two.years. Such cases as are not corrected by the time they begin to walk would be subjected to an operation by some, and treated by a stretching brace by others. Cases that have reached the age of one to three years
