The first edition of this book was published in 1912 by Prof. A. Francis Dixon of Trinity College. It was written for junior students who began their study of gross anatomy with osteology. The second edition has been rewritten by Dr. E. B. Jamieson of Edinburgh for the same students and with the same purpose. It is half as big again as was the first edition (465 pages as against 301) because Dr. Jamieson has found it advisable to include an account of many of the soft parts associated with the bones. So much material of this kind has been introduced that this edition might well be called an introduction to practical gross anatomy. He has added also an account of the development of bone and devoted more attention to joints and to the movements of joints. The illustrations are for the most part the excellent ones that appeared in
