Students will find in this book a reliable indication of what facts in gross anatomy are of the most importance in clinical work. The book will find its greatest usefulness when read in connection with a review study of a dissected part or of a skeleton. To encourage the student to frequent the dissecting room and to refer constantly to dissected parts while revising his work, the author has omitted illustrations from every part of the book except that dealing with the central nervous system. He advises that the book should not be consulted until the actual work of dissection has been completed and revision has been undertaken. In this edition the whole text has been revised and new material added, especially in the section on the central nervous system.
