This volume is devoted to splanchnology, angiology, the nervous system and the organs of sense. The author has given special attention to dental anatomy so that this atlas might be useful in teaching of anatomy classes of schools of dentistry. The bronchial tree has particularly thorough treatment in view of the increasing interest in it by thoracic surgeons. The portion devoted to the anatomy of the nervous system included only those structures that can be seen with the naked eye or a small magnifying glass. The diagrams of the lymphatic system are particularly well done. The drawings are excellent and entirely adequate from the standpoint of gross anatomy. The illustrations are both accurate and artistic. This atlas of gross anatomy will be welcomed by both teachers and students of anatomy.
