In bringing out the fourth edition of Morris' anatomy the publishers have taken the opportunity of making it an international treatise by securing the services of a number of American anatomists in the revision and rewriting of certain of the sections. Some of the sections have been entirely rewritten and considerably enlarged. The results of recent investigations have been included so that the work represents the present state of anatomic science. The Basle system of nomenclature or BNA, as it is called, has been adopted, the older English names being added in parentheses where they differ greatly from the new terms. The illustrations are excellent and have been considerably changed by omitting several of the old ones and adding new ones made from specially prepared drawings or taken from other books with due credit. With these changes the new edition must be welcomed as one of the most valuable text-books
