This book has been thoroughly revised and rearranged, the new arrangement being based on an embryologic plan. The directions for preparing sections have been reduced considerably, a very desirable change because the student must learn the technic from his teacher and by experience in the laboratory and not from a text-book. It is not essential that the student or practitioner should be familiar with the details of many staining processes, but the structure of the adult organs and the developmental possibilities of their constituent tissues must be known. The arrangement is excellent and will appeal to both teacher and student. It clarifies the subject of histology and also makes its study more interesting, a fact of no small importance in teaching. The nomenclature adopted is that published by the Committee of the German Association of Anatomists. Many new illustrations have been embodied in this edition.
