For the medical man who is so practical that he abjures all literature that is not an every day necessity, Chauveau's work has no charm. The student of natural history and of biology, however, finds this work a most valuable addition to his library. To the teacher of anatomy it is,—or should be—indispensable. Very few works on human anatomy are so beautifully illustrated and pleasantly written as is this treatise on comparative anatomy. The generalization of the various topics are excellent, and the specialized descriptions of the various structures are well worthy of imitation by compilers of anatomies of the human subject. That Chauveau's work is the best for students of veterinary medicine goes without the saying. Indeed there is practically no competition in this field, Chauveau being generally accepted as filling the want completely.
