This small volume, originally written fifty years ago and now revised by Prof. C. C. Choyce, presents surgical anatomy in practical and readable form. It divides the body into six regions — head and neck, thorax, upper extremity, lower extremity, abdomen and pelvis, and spine and spinal cord— and each is amply covered from the standpoint of the general surgeon as well as the various surgical specialties. Surgery of the blood vessels, which deals with ligations, abnormalities and collateral circulation, is omitted for the sake of brevity. The work is concise but written clearly and simply, though not abundantly illustrated. Its survival as well as its popularity is indicative of its usefulness as a textbook to the senior student and "to the practitioners whose memory of their dissecting room work is growing a little gray."
