The high standard of material and presentation seen in the previous editions is maintained in this edition. Color is used judiciously in many of the illustrations. The larynx is discussed thoroughly and the section on the vocal cords is exceptionally good. The presentation of the segmental anatomy of the lungs differs slightly from that usually seen in American books. This material was drawn from Hayek and Rouviere. The section dealing with the esophagus might have been amplified by the inclusion of some well-executed illustrations rather than the two roentgenograms shown. The chapter concerned with the pelvic diaphragm is outstanding. The subject matter is depicted beautifully in both text and drawings. The pithy exposition of the pubococcygeal portion of the levator ani muscle is not impaired by the use of a different nomenclature. The book can be recommended unreservedly to anyone interested in anatomy who has a reading knowledge of German.
