EDITORIAL NOTE

An American edition of this “ ATLAS OF FRACTURES AND DISLOCATIONS,” translated from the fifth German edition, is needed and will be welcomed by both students and practitioners.

Fractures and dislocations cannot be properly taught nor understood without illustrations showing the visible external deformity, the X-ray shadow, the anatomic preparation, and the method of dressing. These are as necessary here as with anatomy.

The book of Professor Helferich, better than any yet published, answers the requirements for illustrations. We have much to thank the author for. Such a splendid collection of illustrations is possible only in a very large clinic, and represents time, labor, and great care. The work has been reviewed with pleasure and profit.
