Compendiums of anatomy must be brief, concise, accurate, and above all lucid. This small volume possesses all these qualities in a form sufficient to satisfy most persons. Written mainly for the intern and last year medical student, it will fill their needs as well as any other short anatomic reference book. The author strikes a satisfactory balance between anatomy and clinical application and at the same time does not stifle his immature reader with voluminous detail. Illustrations are ample in most cases to describe the text; they are well labeled and fully summarized. While in no sense a substitute for an anatomy book, this volume will serve admirably to refresh the memory on the relation of bodily structure to surgical problems.
