About this Item

xv, 699 pp; 712 figs. Original cloth. Top & bottom of spine rubbed. First American Edition of Garrison-Morton 4391 (citing London: 1923 ed.): "Jones was a pupil of Hugh Owen Thomas and a pioneer of active surgical intervention in orthopaedics. He . is one of the greatest figures in British orthopaedics." "Robert Jones edited Orthopaedic Surgery of Injuries, in two volumes, in 1921. Following this great text-book by various writers, he decided, not without reluctance, to embark upon his magnum opus in collaboration with Robert Lovett. To anyone with little else to do the undertaking of such work would have proved a formidable task. To a man past middle life, in charge of the busiest private clinic in Great Britain, it meant that every moment was occupied. Fortunately the two collaborators were admirably suited to one another. Lovett was cautious and methodical; Jones was imaginative, but sporadic. The book was published in 1923, and was an immediate success" (Watson, Life of Sir Robert Jones, pp. 268-69).
