This is a new edition of a manual that was first published in 1931. Edwin F. Cave served as chairman of a select subcommittee on revision. Improvements are found in each chapter, and several chapters have been added. Use is made of effective line drawings. The composition is concise and clear. This is not a reference book or even a textbook but rather a pocket manual for the intern or the general practitioner who has not served in an orthopedic or fracture residency.
