These three volumes, which long have been familiar to medical students, provide a source of information on anatomy which is appreciated not only by students but by practitioners, especially those interested in surgery. The importance of anatomy to the physician does not need to be stressed, but unfortunately not all students are as well grounded in this subject as they might be. Perhaps part of the fault lies in failure on the part of the student to orient his lectures and practical dissection. If the student has difficulty he will find, as have many students before him, much help in this latest edition of "Cunningham's Manual of Practical Anatomy." The paper, printing and diagrams again are of admirable quality.
