This atlas is a welcome addition to the textbooks of pathologic anatomy. It presents separate chapters dealing with the various organs except for skin, eye, and ear. The illustrations, for the most part colored, are accompanied by pertinent descriptions and short, stimulating clinical allusions. The book is designed not only as an introduction for the student but also as an instruction for any physician who begins to specialize in learning to view pathological changes and to describe accurately the findings. The value of this book, written by the present nestor of the German school of pathology, lies in the beautiful color photographs, the brilliancy and clearness of which are superb. The reader gets the impression of dealing with actual material from the autopsy table. The specimens are impartially selected and typical of the commoner diseases.
