This is always a valuable book, presenting in schematic and outline form a complete picture of human anatomy. The previous edition appeared in 1943, and thus only minor changes are to be expected. These revisions are chiefly apparent in the increased attention to the autonomic nervous system, the relative importance of which has increased in clinical significance. As always, this work can be recommended to those seeking a concisely diagrammatic review of anatomy.
