This booklet is an adjunct to the author's "X-Ray Atlas of the Systemic Arteries of the Body," and is of value in teaching the arterial system to students of first aid. The attempt has been made to clarify the course and relations of the large and small arteries by their injection in chosen cadavers with an opaque material, and exposures of sections of the body to the roentgen ray. The exposures have been well reproduced. It has value in demonstrating the point of election in the application of pressure in arterial hemorrhage in any section of the body.
