The Anatomy of the Central Nervous Organs in Health and in Disease.

JAMA. 1890;XV(14):519. doi:10.1001/jama.1890.02410400035018.

A careful reading of this extremely valuable addition to the literature of anatomy, and in particular to its most complicated part, commands admiration for the thoroughness, painstaking and indefatigable labor of the author who, from a mass of material formerly scattered in periodicals, has collected, carefully weighed and herein systematically presented the best that is known on the subject. He has been very fortunate, moreover, in his translator, who has given us a book in English, and not the jargon which so frequently characterizes translations from other languages, and especially from the German. An obscure or involved sentence is sought for in vain, and a wholesome use of Saxon is very refreshing on a subject usually buried under a pedantic nomenclature.

The work in no wise takes the place of textbooks on descriptive anatomy, a knowledge of which it presupposes, but is prepared for the advanced student, practitioner and specialist.
