The second edition of this already valuable book contains more than two hundred new illustrations, with the addition of color to some of the old illustrations. New features include complete coverage of hernia, the common anomalies found in the dissecting room, illustrations of epiphyses of the limb bones and plates of the cranial nerves. More comparative contrast might have been used in some of the half tone illustrations, but this is not a serious defect. The line drawings seem to lack a sureness of execution, but this is the result of the method used in tracing to insure accuracy. The index is adequate. It is a good atlas.
