First edition of one of Dr. Cushing’s greatest clinical monographs, prepared with the collaboration of Dr. Eisenhardt. This work represents 25 years of work as a clinician. His extensive case records and photographs, his unusual artistic ability evidenced in his numerous operative sketches, resulted in one of the most comprehensive works on intracranial meningiomas. The bibliography at the end is excellent and comprehensive.
