The third volume on the anatomy of man is devoted to the central nervous system. Hermann Braus, who died in 1924, was the author of the first two volumes. The present volume was begun by Professor Braus, and when Elze took it over for completion there was only a bare skeleton; he never had the opportunity of discussing its plan of presentation with the original author. The book therefore is really by Elze.

The presentation of the material follows the usual plan; that is, there is first a discussion of the morphology and development of the nervous system, with comments on the neuron theory, degeneration and the neuroglia. This is followed by the presentation of the spinal cord, cerebrum, cerebellum, meninges and vessels. The subject is adequately covered. There are some excellent illustrations, and the color work is good. It is adequate for students.
