This little pocket anatomy is one of the Students' Aids Series. It is only 5/8 inch thick and 4 inches across. It is essentially a tabulation intended for a review of anatomy by surgeons who have in prospect the surgical examinations. As such it can be highly recommended despite a little carelessness in diction, as for example on page 12, where "opening the jaw" must mean opening the mouth. The fact that this is the tenth edition is evidence of its popularity.
