This is a brief volume on topographic anatomy. The terminology employed is that of the British revision of the B N A. In the present times, when military surgery is becoming of increasing importance, the handiness of a brief, accurate, topographic anatomic reference work is apparent. It is of special value in reviewing the topographic anatomy of the extremities. The book has to its advantage a brevity and succinctness of description. It can be recommended as an excellent refresher in certain anatomic details.
