From the Preface to the Fourth Edition; 'The last edition was printed just before the outbreak of war ... This work has therefore needed, and has, I hope, received, a very drastic revision ... in spite of compression and rather ruthless excisions, this book has grown ... several new chapters have been added. Among them is one which deals with Surgical Technique'. Publisher's advertising card loosely inserted.
