This completes the entire edition of these pleasing anatomic illustrations. The previously issued five sections have already been reviewed in The Journal. The limbs lend themselves readily to the diagrammatic portrayal used in the drawings, and the lavish use of color helps considerably in keeping the intricate structures separate. As with the remaining sections, these additional portions can be recommended without reservation to the student of gross anatomy. The axilla is especially well portrayed. The knee joint and its ligaments could be more clearly described. Again it should be pointed out that for the small format employed too many details are occasionally delineated; this does not detract considerably from these splendid manuals.
