There are many changes and additions to the illustrations of this new edition of the "little Schafer." The numerous and, in general, excellent illustrations that constitute the bulk of this work are all improved by the change to a glazed paper. The text remains as clear and concise as ever; the determination to keep it brief deprives the book of physiologic interpretations such as the author is eminently fitted to make. Cytologic considerations are reduced to an absolute minimum. When used in connection with a good set of sections, it is adequate for the ordinary elementary course in histology which aims at nothing more than a preparation for courses in pathology.
