ABSTRACT

Seven decades of medical students have had the pleasant acquaintance of A Textbook of Histology, originally by Maximov and Bloom in 1930 and, since 1962, by Bloom and Fawcett. As in previous editions, the new 12th continues to present a scholarly, comprehensive, lucid, and well-organized description of basic histology that, like a Gothic cathedral, has withstood the test of time. The author introduces the reader to the intricacies of tissue histology from the perspective of classic and electron microscopic morphology.

As much or more than any other discipline of medicine, histology makes abundant use of illustrations and, as with the 19861107-page 11th edition published by WB Saunders, this new 964-page Chapman & Hall edition presents 869 useful and clear figures, several in color and more than 100 new. The quality of the illustrations on semi-glossy paper is good but less stellar than in previous editions.

The book has 35 chapters,
