ABSTRACT

This attractive collection of anatomic plates differs from the third edition by the addition of 80 new illustrations. The plates are of excellent quality. They are arranged in order by regions: upper extremity, abdomen, perineum, pelvis, lower extremity, vertebral column, thorax, head and neck, cranial nerves, and dermatomes.

The brain is represented by only two plates, which should be supplemented in future editions. Abdominal organs are shown as seen in cadavers. This is helpful to the student of anatomy as he dissects, but it is sometimes desirable to point out that the location of the stomach and the appearance of the ileocolic junction, to take two examples, are very different in the living subject. An interesting feature of the book is the information on normal variations. This is a substantial and commendable
