This was first issued as three volumes: the first in 1960, the second in 1962, and the third in 1968. It was immediately recognized by veterinarians as an outstanding contribution in its detail, accuracy, and comprehensiveness. This second edition, adopted from the English translation by R. Getty, DVM, PhD, chairman of the Department of Veterinary Anatomy, University of Iowa, is issued in a single volume. It is remarkable for both the detail and the beauty of its illustrations and is printed on heavyweight glossy paper in a handsome binding. The work details the gross anatomy of the cow, sheep, goat, swine, horse, dog, cat, and rabbit. Although this volume is intended for use by veterinarians, it would prove indispensable to those physicians who use domestic animals in laboratory research surgery.
