In extending and completing the late Professor Nonidez' manuscript, Professor Windle has achieved a uniformity of level throughout the text, illustrations and references which accomplishes admirably the authors' intent to produce a highly lucid, up-to-date and original book for the beginner in this subject. There are 209 original drawings, made for the purpose by Nonidez, and 193 new photomicrographs, which are generally of excellent and often superior quality. To obtain maximum readability much of the usual detail and all historical and controversial aspects of the subject are eliminated. References are limited to a few selected collateral readings. A bibliography of motion picture films is included.

The book is well suited to many undergraduate courses in human histology. For the medical curriculum there are several aspects which some instructors will consider to be oversimplified.
