This book is intended for use in elementary classes in histology and microscopic anatomy in which sections are issued for study with a microscope. It is excellently adapted to its purpose. It is illustrated by drawings made from sections; nearly all are colored, and the colors are those of the stains commonly employed, usually hematoxylin and eosin. Brief practical accounts of microscopes and of microscopic apparatus are illustrated by diagrams. The common methods of fixation, staining and mounting are outlined. One author is a physiologist, the other a demonstrator of histology, and the correlation of structure and function is clearly set forth. The text is admirably lucid, though brief. Elementary students and teachers should find the work practical and satisfactory.
