Ownership signature and rubber stamp of Clare Gray Peterson. Near fine. RARE SIGNED PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION BY WATSON-JONES: ?Good luck to C. Peterson who I am delighted to have met in Oregon, Reginald Watson-Jones, June 7th, 1946.? ?[Sir Reginald] was considered to be one of the most outstanding orthopaedic surgeons in the mid-twentieth century and is responsible for bringing the treatment of fractures to the specialized position it holds today… he became most famous for his instructional course lectures on fractures that were held in the early 1930's. These sessions were so successful and so well attended that he was asked to write his notes into a fracture text. Fractures and Joint Injuries was published just prior to World War II. Most surgeons at the time found the text to be concise and ?non-academic,? which was refreshing and enabled them to better understand the concepts. The text served as a guiding hand for all military surgeons during World War II. Prior to this, there had never been a fracture text that dealt as comprehensively with fracture management. This remained a standard reference for decades in dealing with fractures and was translated into many languages. Still today it is a highly demanded book in areas of the world where operative treatment is not practical.? Hagy, ?'Keeping Up with the Joneses' - The Story of Sir Robert Jones and Sir Reginald Watson-Jones?, Iowa Orthop J. 2004; 24: 133–137.
