This textbook has for a long time been in use in Europe. The peripheral nerves are carefully traced anatomically and functionally from their first neuron to their final nerve ending. Included in this anatomic consideration are the cranial nerves and the autonomic nervous system. The final chapter is devoted to a discussion of lesions of the peripheral nerves, with which the authors have apparently had a wide experience. The entire text is well illustrated with excellent line drawings and photographs. There are two very clear schematic representations of the muscular supply by segments of the upper and lower extremities. For those to whom the reading of German literature is not a difficult problem, this book is recommended as a concise and carefully written consideration of the peripheral nerves.
