This new century edition of "Gray's Anatomy" looks almost like a different book when compared with the older ones. It has been thoroughly revised, and about 60 new illustrations added, replacing some of the old wood-cuts. The newer processes of picture-making have enabled the publishers to produce differences in shading to represent curves, cavities and portions more remote, which art is an excellent aid in descriptive anatomy.
