In the review of so well known a book, nothing more is necessary than to record the changes that have been made. In this edition the special sections on embryology and histology have been distributed among the subjects under which they naturally belong. New matter on physiologic anatomy, laws of bone architecture, and the mechanics and variations of muscles has been added, occupying much of the space formerly devoted to applied anatomy. The sections on ductless glands and the nervous system have been largely rewritten. By means of diagrams and descriptions, the sympathetic nervous system is presented in a more rational manner than heretofore. The central connections of the spinal and cranial nerves are also emphasized. Many new illustrations have been added, especially in the section on the central nervous system.
