The mode of presentation of the bone structures from birth through the developmental periods to adult life is well done. The descriptive manner in which all of these different subjects are handled is worthy of comment. The tracings of x-ray films and the reproductions of x-ray films of descriptive character are good and the author should be commended for the numerous illustrations of the different pathologic processes which he has depicted. The footnotes of the different illustrations are enlightening; the verbal descriptions of the pathologic processes are complete and interesting. The numerous references to other authors show extensive study of the literature. The book is recommended for use by those interested in bone and joint diseases both in the x-ray and in other medical fields.
