This volume deals with the joints of the lower extremities, chest, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum. As in the first two volumes, anatomy is studied from the regional point of view, which is, of course, that of surgery. A reading of the volume makes it evident that the text is as much one of operative surgery as of anatomy. This is particularly true of the chapters on the abdomen and pelvis, in which the technical steps of operations on the bile tracts, stomach, kidneys and other viscera are described in detail. The text is easily readable. There is the same profusion of excellent dissection plates as are found in the first two volumes. This is really a beautiful piece of work.
