The fact that this pioneer work, now nearly 70 years old, has gone through 12 editions and 15 reprints demonstrates its extraordinary popularity. The book, written in a simple style, is well arranged, liberally illustrated in black and red, and is set in easily read type on a good quality of paper. The use of blue coloring for illustrations of veins would have greatly enhanced the value of the diagrams. The binding is sturdy, and the small format makes the book easy to handle. The index is relatively brief but adequate. Although the book is intended chiefly for students, it deserves a place in any hospital library. It is a worthy junior companion to larger and more elaborate textbooks on surgical anatomy.
