In this well arranged little book the history of developments in neuroanatomy is traced by an outstanding authority, better known to many in the broad field of neurology as a beloved professor and a true scientist. It is a well written compendium. The contents are concisely outlined at the beginning, and the index of proper names at the back of the book is a handy reference. It is not a book to be read through at one sitting but a reference work which either the young or old student of neurology, neuroanatomy or neurophysiology will find useful. The manner of printing detracts from the pleasure of reading of this book. It is an important piece of work but of interest to a limited group; hence, it was imperative to keep publishing cost at a minimum.
