This is a "shorter anatomy" intended to lighten the work of medical and dental students preparing for examinations. It contains a considerable number of diagrams, tables and charts. The fact that seven editions have appeared in forty years is evidence of appreciation by the students. The text is essentially a tabulation. The charts and diagrams include extensive areas in one representation: this comprehensiveness makes them more valuable to students. In this edition the Basle nomenclature is used in its Latin form throughout the text, though not on the illustrations. If the legends on the illustrations also were revised, it would be a further improvement in the compendium.
