The present edition of this deservedly popular little book, though enlarged, is still a pocket atlas. There were 297 illustrations in the first and 325 in the second edition. The new ones show lymphatics, the solar plexus, relations of the thoracic viscera to the chest wall, and so on. The English edition is published by the Oxford University Press and was printed in Edinburgh. The nomenclature conforms with the Birmingham revision of the BNA. An index has been added. As a pocket companion it will always be interesting and will save many a "quart d'heure" which would otherwise be lost.
