The author of this interesting little book was head of the orthopedic outpatient department at Munich and has used this wealth of material for the study that he has undertaken. He believes that practically all the common congenital deformities, namely, those that deal with variations in the bones and joints and extra digits, are due to an inherited tendency, and each of his observations is accompanied by a family tree to illustrate this. The subject matter is very interesting and well brought out. The plates illustrating the various types of deformities are well done.
