This atlas contains twenty full-scale photographs of coronal sections of the head and neck. All of them are of remarkable clarity, preserving the detail of a fresh anatomical section. The sections are taken approximately 1 cm. apart, making it exceptionally easy to trace the course of small structures. All of the structures are clearly labeled, and the number of labels is not so excessive as to confuse the reader. This book is handsomely bound and printed. In addition, there is a series of five drawings indicating the relationship of the sections to the cranial bones, to the ventricular system, to a midline section of the brain, brain stem, and cerebellum, and to the intra- and extracranial cerebral venous and arterial systems. Each photograph is accompanied by a small drawing to remind the reader of the exact position of the section illustrated.
