This atlas presents a complete and up-to-date exposition of the surgery of the hand. Part 1 deals with the anatomy and the physiology of the hand; part 2 with closed injuries; part 3 with fresh injuries; part 4 with reparative plastic procedures, including a chapter on the treatment of severed nerves and on palliative treatment of the various paralyses of the hand; part 5 with acute infections, chronic synovitis, and Dupuytren's contracture; and part 6 with congenital anomalies of the hand and their treatment. The value of the atlas is enhanced by the profuse and excellent pen and ink illustrations by Jean Dudouet. The legends are brief and adequate. This atlas should prove a valuable contribution to an important subject.
