This book, while including subjects of interest to the general student of embryology, is primarily intended "to present to the student of medicine the most important facts of development, at the same time emphasizing those features which bear directly on other branches of medicine." It is accordingly divided into two parts and an appendix. Part I deals with general development. Part II with the development of the adult tissues and organs. To each chapter there is appended a good bibliography and "practical suggestions" for laboratory work, embracing the subjects dealt with in that chapter. In each chapter of Part II there is added under "anomalies" an embryologic consideration of malformations peculiar to the structures taken up in the respective chapter. There is also a special chapter on teratogenesis in which are discussed duplicity of structures and fetus, defects in fetus and the causes underlying the origin of monsters.
