Description: Cassell, London, 1938, first edition.. 263 pp, 8vo (8 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This volume follows the author's 'Leaves From a Surgeon's Case-Book', which has had outstanding success. In its twenty chapters it emphasises the advances of the last few years in surgical metho ds, and the value of newly discovered ways of treatment, in a manner readily followed by the layman. It explains what science is doing for the alleviation of pain; the minimising of risk in even major operations; the vastly improved chances o f c u r e and recovery, and in it all inspires confidence by removing fear. Many examples are given of the ever-increasing victories accruing from laboratory research and the patient observation of results in practice. It reads like a benign rom an c e. Th e author, a famous surgeon writing under a nom-de-plume, has produced a timely book, of engrossing interest in its encouraging story of surgical and medical progress."
