This is the third edition of a book which was originally published in 1937. It has had a wide usage as a text for undergraduate students, as well as for graduate students and practitioners. Its interest to the pediatrician is emphasized by the fact that approximately 60 per cent of its 473 pages of text is concerned with the musculoskeletal diseases and abnormalities of childhood.
Since the discussion of most conditions is in outline form and not in great technical detail, it is a convenient book of reference for the pediatrician. Its reference qualities are greatly enhanced by an extensive bibliography of 75 pages, which is classified by chapter and subject. This permits the person who desires more detailed knowledge of a particular subject than is available in the text to enlarge the source of his information. This is one of the valuable features of the book.
