This is a small textbook for elementary students. It consists of 314 pages plus thirty-six on embryology. The text is brief, reliable and remarkably comprehensive, considering its brevity. Only the larger gross structures are mentioned. Brief paragraphs on function are included in each section. The illustrations are well selected from standard books and include microscopic anatomy. The author has done well in devoting in an elementary textbook so large a proportion of space to illustrations. The brief, concise text, the notes on function, and the good illustrations make it an excellent elementary textbook.
