This excellent book is a real contribution for the undergraduate as well as the graduate student. It is written on the premise that neurology is dependent on an accurate knowledge of anatomy as a basis for the intelligent diagnosis and localization of neural disturbances. With this premise the reviewer entirely agrees. There are twenty chapters. The first eight describe in detail the organization of the central nervous system with regard to embryology, histology, segmental distribution of the peripheral nerve elements and their significance. The next twelve chapters are devoted to the study of the architec-a tonics of the central nervous system. Here one finds excellent gross and microscopic photographs of anatomic detail with a clearcut discussion of the relationship of the structures in the light of clinical experience. There are three hundred and twenty such photographs. There is a large bibliography. This is a good book and is highly recommended.
