This manual has been a familiar one for more than forty years. Written by one of the best surgeons of the older school, it represents a survival of the time when anatomy was the most important course in the medical curriculum. It contains seven hundred pages of closely written matter, dealing essentially with surgical anatomy. Illustrations are infrequent, but as originally designed "the book is intended mainly for the use of students for their final examination in surgery." It is, however, a handy reference book, in which detailed study of illustrations is not required.
