The first edition of this work on the "Essentials of Anatomy" was issued in 1888, and it has proven to be one of the most popular of "Saunders' Question Compends." That students of medicine, for whom it was especially prepared, have made a demand for it, is fairly indicated by the fact that this edition begins the fourteenth thousand placed on sale. It may, in many respects, be considered an epitome of Gray's popular work on general anatomy, at the same time having some distinguishing characteristics of its own to commend it. The plates are of more than ordinary excellence, and are of especial value to students in their work in the dissecting room. It can be recommended to them.
