This important contribution for teaching anatomy with the use of stereoscopic 35 millimeter still films now includes volumes on the upper extremity. The 28 reels consist of beautifully taken stereoscopic films depicting anatomical dissections of the upper extremity. The films are for projection, and each film is accompanied by a detailed sketch showing the names of the anatomical parts.

Previous sections have dealt with the central nervous system and the anatomy of the head and neck. All these volumes are certainly worth the attention of everyone who performs surgery, and teaches anatomy.
