The increased use of the photographic method of recording anatomic and physiologic data in the study of patients makes the present book a timely and valuable addition to the literature of the subject. Chapters by various authors give, in considerable detail, the principles of photographic methods, the use of photographic material in anatomy, anthropology, histology, cardiology, psychiatry, ophthalmology, dermatology and radiology, and in medicolegal studies. Methods of taking moving pictures, especially as applying to medical subjects, are described. The data are rather detailed, and specific formulas are given. Each section is fairly complete in itself, and a limited bibliography is given. The book is illustrated by excellent photographs. The chapter on the status of the photograph in the law courts is of interest, although the rulings must necessarily vary in different countries. The book should be valuable to any one using the photographic method of recording data.
