This is a simple textbook written from the point of view of an anatomist. It contains, in addition to the facts of anatomy, brief accounts of the functional activities of the different organs. Instead of starting with the various tissues and cells as some textbooks do, it introduces the student immediately to gross anatomy and later comes to the finer structures. The book is well written and well illustrated, fourteen of the illustrations being in color. The aim of the author has been not to teach anatomy solely for its own sake but to show its relation to the other sciences and to point out some of its everyday applications.
