This so-called second edition is really a completely reworked expanded monograph with 529 figures. Anatomy, physiology, and variations in cerebral vessels occupy half of the text and about a third of the illustrations. Vascular diseases, intracranial tumors (based on 1,303 verified neoplasms), malformations, inflammatory diseases, granulomas, parasites, and traumatic disorders are liberally illustrated and discussed. Numerous drawings help understand the beautifully reproduced roentgenograms (reversed, as is customary in European productions). In all, angiograms of 7,305 patients have been studied and discussed in relation to relevant literature of 1958 to 1964. The only reasons why this magnificent atlas and text might not be considered indispensable for neurologists are the language (German in a very readable style) and the cost. Yet, because of its value it certainly should be accessible to all who wish to expand their knowledge of cerebral angiography.
