This book, although written primarily for students of dentistry, is, however, of interest to all those concerned with the subject of oral anatomy. Intended as a supplement to standard texts of anatomy, its descriptive passages have been simplified, while greater emphasis has been placed on practical and functional considerations. This has been accomplished to great advantage. Illustrations are abundant and instructive.

The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with descriptive anatomy; the second, with regional and applied anatomy. The temporomandibular articulation has been especially carefully considered. A particularly informative chapter is presented on topographic anatomy as applied to the techniques of local anesthesia. A review is given of approaches to arterial ligations and other surgical procedures (i. e., tracheotomy). While this is too brief from the surgeon's point of view, it is more than adequate for the student's understanding. An excellent index has been provided.
