This new and important textbook is a valuable contribution to medical teaching. Emphasis is given to those aspects of embryology which, are of importance as a background of other medical subjects. Functional aspects are well correlated with development, making for greater interest and usefulness. In the chapters dealing with each of the systems, the developmental data are oriented toward practical medicine, and each chapter ends with a discussion of the more common anomalies.

The style of writing is simple and clear; the photographs and drawings are profuse in number and excellent in quality.

This volume should be invaluable not only to medical students, but also to practitioners interested in the embryonic basis of developmental anomalies.
