This atlas represents an ambitious undertaking of a new and needed project. To my knowledge no other collection of electron micrographs covering the ultrastructure of essentially all mammalian tissues has been made. It consists of 82 full-page plates each of which is accompanied by one page of descriptive material with pertinent references to the literature. The quality of the engraving is good. The atlas is intended for use by general students of microscopic anatomy, rather than for the electron microscopist. It does not include diagrams or photomicrographs which may be found in any standard histological text, but should be used in conjunction with such a text. For the most part the micrographs are from normal adult mice. Those interested in extensive studies of a specific organ will no doubt wish for a more detailed coverage of the field of their special interest. For example, those particularly interested in the eye
