This is essentially a prosector's guide. It deals with the topographic anatomy of the two extremities, and contains carefully drawn plans for the preparation of demonstrations. The nomenclature used is French. No attempt is made to select names in international usage. The book contains fifty-eight full page plates made from special dissections by the author, and nineteen smaller illustrations. The plates are well made and are valuable. The chapters on joints are of especially good quality, are well illustrated, and will be of interest to surgeons and to all others who study the action of joints. The chapter on the arteries of the palm and that on the muscles and nerves of the palm are presented with especial fulness and clearness. While this book is good, it is not better than the sections of standard textbooks and atlases dealing with the same topics.
