This book is concerned with the anatomy of the horse, ox, dog, pig and sheep, and to this edition has been added a section on the chicken. The book takes up first the skeleton of these domestic animals, then the joints, fascia and muscles, followed by comparative discussions of the digestive system, respiratory system, urinary and genital organs, vascular system, lymphatic system, nervous system and sense organs. It is well illustrated and should be of great use to persons interested in the anatomy of domestic animals. While the previous edition was published twenty-four years ago, the general plan and scope remain unchanged except for the new chapter on the anatomy of the chicken and the large increase in the number of new illustrations.
