This volume represents a compilation of paintings and colored drawings of the normal and pathological anatomy of the organs mentioned. On each page, next to the illustration, is a concise explanation. Chapter subjects include normal anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, hepatic and pancreatic function tests, diseases of the liver, diseases of the gallbladder and bile ducts, and diseases of the pancreas. The text and illustrations have been prepared in consultation with Oscar Bodansky, Eugene Clifton, Donald Kozoll, Hans Popper, and Victor M. Sborov. These outstanding authorities add to the stature of the book. The illustrations are clear, instructive, and well printed. They cover, in a relatively comprehensive fashion, the subjects involved, although illustrations of this sort may depart, in certain instances, from the situation observed in photographs. This book should serve a useful purpose, particularly as a teaching medium and also as an instructive volume, for anyone interested in the field.
