"In this book I have sought to help [the surgeons] by a re-statement of the principles which underlie the art of orthopœdic surgery. My chapters are based on a score of lectures given at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in the winter 1917-18 on "The anatomical and physiological prinicples underlying the treatment of injuries to muscles, nerves, bones and joints' ... I have sought .. to introduce [the reader] to the 'Menders of the maimed' as they were in the heyday of life. In only this way, I conceive can medical history be written."--Pref.
