This work gives in a brief yet fairly detailed form the information and illustrations generally divided between an atlas and a text-book on the anatomy of the brain and cord. Part I is devoted to morphology, or rather topographic anatomy; Part II to the course of the different fiber tracts. Most of the illustrations are schematic and clear; at the end of the book there are forty-nine full-page reproductions of sections through the brain-stem, at suitable intervals, from the genu of the callosum to the caudal end of the bulb. Only the normal brain and cord are considered, not the peripheral nerves or pathologic conditions. The clear text, everywhere illustrated by schematic drawings, will recommend the book to the student or physician looking for elementary information, and the anatomist or neuropathologist will secure the work on account of the serial sections mentioned.
