This standard text shows the results of careful revision. Although the changes from the previous edition are considerable and inclusive of much new information, the original plan and mode of presentation are unchanged. It is intended for elementary students of medicine and dentistry but contains enough material to be useful for later years of the medical and dental curriculum. A commendable and reasonably successful attempt is made to integrate histology with border subjects such as gross morphology, embryology and physiology, but the book retains its essential character as a well written treatise of normal histology. Illustrations are numerous and mostly of excellent quality. Selected references are appended to each chapter. Although some ofthe older type face and cuts show considerable evidence of wear, the production of this book is of excellent quality. Its contents are recommended as rating with the best in the field.
