The blight of Hitler has not seriously injured Braus's textbook. The book as a whole is one of the best and differs from others so much in plan, conception and treatment that it should be in every good library of anatomy. Its special merits are: 1. Its close and thorough integration with general biology: Braus was a great biologist. Recently acquired biologic knowledge is seen to bring a good deal of help to our study of human structure and function. On a foundation of sound embryology this book integrates physiology and morphology. 2. Its consideration of the full course of life from development to senescence. 3. Its illustrations, which are beautiful and instructive and which by themselves constitute a valuable contribution to the already rich literature of anatomy. One defect lies in the relatively scant attention given the lymphatic system. This volume has been edited by Prof. Curt Elze of
