The title of this book implies that it is an atlas of the normal histology of the human body and is published in the German language. It is a collection of 398 photomicrographs, mainly in color, each with a descriptive legend; however, many of the illustrations are of animal tissues other than those of the human body, and some are of diseased tissues. All of the legends are brief and comment only on the material actually illustrated. There is no correlating descriptive text to integrate the illustrations and give the student of histology the basic elements necessary to understand the structure of the various tissues of the body. A student beginning the study of the normal histology of the human body would need other texts for this information. The atlas, accordingly, provides only supplemental help and probably has small appeal to students of histology in this country.
