In this volume the author has endeavored to furnish a concise though complete synopsis of human anatomy. His task has necessarily been a difficult one, but by resorting to various ingenious devices he has been able to abridge in some directions without sacrificing in the matter of clearness of description. Descriptive anatomy does not afford an inviting field for such work, but we believe that Dr. Young has done his work as well as it can be done.
