This atlas consists of 25 plates, nearly life size, of Röntgenographs of the chest taken at definite angles through the body so as to present to view, as it were, the contents of the thorax from every possible direction.
The author correctly believes that the normal anatomy should be studied from the viewpoint of the x-ray plate before the attempt is made to study the pathologic picture and the object of these plates is to furnish some reliable data covering this particular portion of the body. The plates are very good, although they have lost somewhat in clearness of detail by repeated printing, a loss which is partially compensated for by the descriptive diagrams and explanatory text accompanying each plate.
