Dr. George W. Corner has prepared this work with the guidance of Dr. and Mrs. Charles Singer, M. Wickersheimer, and others recognized as leaders in the field of medical history. He carries the study of anatomy from the period of the school of Salernum through the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, quoting repeatedly from many little known texts and citing numerous examples of the manner in which modern anatomy became a science. A large portion of the book is devoted to the anatomies of Nicolai and Ricardi Anglici.
