The above is a copy of a portion of the title-page of the last edition of the most popular work on anatomy ever written. It is sufficient to say of it that this edition, thanks to its American editor, surpasses all other editions. It is not the "Gray's Anatomy" of ten years ago. The student of that day would scarcely recognize it, with the large number of new illustrations, the careful change of much of the text for the better, and the many colored illustrations. With such a work in his hands the student can no longer complain that "anatomy is dry bones."
