The third volume of Professor Tandler's textbook maintains the standard of quality which characterized the first two volumes and which is confidently expected in any work of this distinguished anatomist. The book constitutes an excellent text covering the field of the blood and lymph vascular systems. An introductory, general account of the blood vessels is followed by a brief but instructive treatment of the blood plasma and the cellular elements of the blood. These general articles include a presentation of the minute anatomy of these structures and of the functions they perform. In the account of the blood vascular apparatus, the section on the heart is of unusual excellence. It includes about fifty new illustrations, which represent the conditions in systole and diastole with especial clearness. The models of the cavities of the heart as they appear in the different phases of its activity will be of interest and value
