The fact that a third edition of this little book is called for indicates that it has been useful and popular. It gives the student of anatomy and of medicine a good point of view and good ideas of the nature of the subject. It suggests practical considerations for dissection and for study of the relation of gross anatomy to function and disease, and it suggests also interesting books and articles in this field. Like most similar books published in England, it devotes a relatively large amount of space to consideration of examinations. This edition has been slightly modified to express more fully the recommendations of the Curriculum Committee of the General Medical Council of Great Britain, although the book in its earlier editions was thoroughly in accord with the principles expressed by that body. It can be highly recommended as a pleasing and valuable aid to students and teachers of anatomy.
