Although there are at present several excellent and authoritative textbooks in histology for medical students, there is certainly room for one like this. This was originally intended to be the sixth edition of Bremen and Weatherford's "Textbook of Histology"; however, a vastly different and superior book has emerged. The present book is the result of the joint effort of different authors: E. W. Dempsey wrote on the structure of organisms, muscular tissue, mammary glands, and the thyroid gland; H. W. Deane wrote on cell structure and function, histochemistry, and the embryologic origin of tissues, epithelium, alimentary tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas; D. W. Fawcett on mesenchyma and connective tissue, adipose tissue, cartilage, and bone; M. Singer, the nervous system; R. Barrnett, the blood vascular system; L. P. Weiss, blood, the development of blood cells, the sites of blood cell reproduction, bone marrow, lymphatic tissue, and the origin of blood cells
