This well-known work on anatomy which has been the principal text-book in England and the United States for the last thirty-five years, has again made its appearance in a new edition, this time wholly English. The Holden's Landmarks incorporated in the last edition have been omitted. The changes have included the latest teachings on general anatomy and the development of the tissues. No recommendation of ours could add to the already high estimation in which this book is held by the profession in America. It has sometimes been said that there were many errors in Gray, but nevertheless they have grown fewer with each successive edition, and it takes such a hypercritical vision to discover them now, that like the spots on the sun, the average man only knows of them from hearsay.
