This book constitutes the third part of the second volume of the Handbook of Microscopic Anatomy, edited by Wilhelm von Möllendorff and published by Julius Springer. It deals with all three kinds of muscle, smooth, cardiac and skeletal, with their structure, their relation to connective tissues, their manner of working, their development and their life history, and the changes with age that develop in them. A fourth section deals with locomotor apparatus in general. Introducing the section devoted to each of these subjects is an historical review of the development of our knowledge and theories. This constitutes one of the most valuable features of the work. The account of the relations of muscle to connective tissue and tendons, the relations of tendon to bone and soft parts, and the manner in which muscle tissue and the locomotor apparatus in general works is based on fundamental questions of structure and function
