This contribution is an atlas of 148 pages in length representing a detailed anatomical study of the structures comprising the skull and particularly those at the base of the skull. Tomograms are placed next to corresponding drawings with labels, thus allowing rapid identification of the various structures depicted on the tomograms. The structures at the base of the skull are emphasized in the book with excellent illustrations of the anatomy of the temporal bone and of the various portions of the sphenoid. The drawings are consistently labeled with clarity and the tomographic reproductions are of good quality in almost all instances. The most valuable feature of the atlas is the correlation of anatomy with roentgenographic anatomy. The atlas does not make an effort to illustrate differences between anatomical features of the fetal and newborn skull compared with the adult skull. The atlas will be found useful as a reference source
