This is a profusely illustrated monograph concerning the angio-architectonics of the cerebral cortex of Macacus rhesus. The preparations were made by the author's injection method. The author maintains that angio-architectonics is now an autonomous discipline comparable to cytoarchitectonics and myelo-architectonics. On the basis of his studies Pfeifer has prepared an elaborate map of the cerebral cortex of the macaque and gives detailed photographs of the vascular pattern of the most important areas. The differences in vascularization are sometimes obvious; in other cases considerable imagination is necessary to see the boundaries. One wonders what results the author would have arrived at if he had had no cyto-architectonic maps before him. The fields outlined are not identical with those of Brodmann but the general correspondence is striking. It would serve no purpose to go into detail concerning the topographic results of this study. The book is of no use to the practitioner
