This section on the abdomen, the fifth of a series intended to illustrate the gross anatomy of the human body, consists of 140 stereoscopic kodachrome photographs of cadaver dissections. Previous issues dealt with the central nervous system, head and neck, upper extremity, and thorax. Sections on the pelvis, lower extremity, and back are in preparation.

Within each of the major areas, a general view introduces the series of dissections and is followed by close-up views showing details of the anatomy at higher magnifications. An invaluable part of this volume is the labeled atlas of line drawings made from, and accompanying, each Kodachrome pair. Anatomical nomenclature adopted by the Sixth International Congress of Anatomists, Paris, 1955, is used for the first time in this section.

The View-Master circular reels are well made and can be used in a hand viewer or in a stereoprojector. Special viewing glasses are required for viewing
