A scarce, pioneering pamphlet on the treatment of joint and spinal disease. Andrews was born in Vermont, graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School, came to Chicago in 1856, and helped to found the Chicago Medical College. His training as a surgeon received extra schooling during the Civil War. Sherman was an orthopedic surgeon at the Chicago Medical College. Their research led them to publish this Essay. "The results of these researches have never been laid fully before the Profession, and, consequently, many recent improvements are still unknown to a large proportion of Practitioners."
