In essence, this book is a comprehensive collection of schematic drawings of the systematic and topographic anatomy of the spinal nerves. The author has made successful use of the advantages of the diagrammatic method of illustration to stress the points of special interest and importance. He has been similarly successful in avoiding the pitfall of oversimplification. The anatomic sites 'illustrated are selected with great care and present many aspects of important anatomic relationships found only with difficulty by studying atlases. The drawings are executed with great skill, and, in most of them, a desirable degree of three-dimensional quality has been obtained. The labeling is clear, and the structures are easily identified.
