The fact that more than 30,000 copies of Heitzmann's "Anatomischer Atlas," the basis of this work, have been sold in the last sixteen years in Germany should be taken as evidence that the work is a good one. And yet we cannot consider a work on anatomy complete unless it takes some account of anomalies; and anomalies are not mentioned in this book, except some of those of the branches of the arch of the aorta and in the course of the obturator artery. As a guide to dissection it might answer very well, but in its present shape and style its title is a misleading misnomer.
