Abstract

This volume, a pioneering handbook on the anatomy of the Rhesus monkey, is divided into eighteen chapters and written by a total of nineteen contributors. In addition, there is a short appendix on the housing and care of this type of monkey written by the senior author, who has incorporated in it not only his own experiences in these respects but also those of Dr. George E. Corner. The book was compiled partly for research workers who intend to use this species of monkey as a laboratory animal, partly for students of comparative anatomy. Excellent as it is for the groups for which it was intended, most physicians would find it a dud on their book shelves.
