Galley Proofs; First Edition, Offprint Issue. Cushing served as a medical officer with the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I; during that time, he published four papers detailing his important technical contributions to the treatment of wartime brain injuries, of which this paper on penetrating wounds of the brain is the second. One of the pencil notes in the galleys corrects the orientation of an illustration; the other is a comment that did not get included in the final version, represented here by the offprint from the British Medical Journal.
