There can be no question as to the value of a good Atlas of Anatomy as an aid to the acquisition and retention of correct ideas regarding the structure of the human body and the relations of its various parts. Anatomy, at least the descriptive part of it, is learned only when one can call up a mental picture of the part in question, and volumes of description will do less to furnish a correct picture than will a single dissection or the inspection of an accurate illustration. This is especially true as regards relational anatomy, and without an accurate knowledge of the relations of parts the student or practitioner will find himself sadly at sea in his application of Anatomy to diagnosis and treatment. To both the student and the practitioner, therefore, a good Atlas must prove a great boon, to the one in enabling him to impress upon his mind what he has seen in the laboratory, without recourse to the pernicious quiz-compend, which is but a Tantalus cup, to the other in recalling the mental image more or less blurred by time. The present Atlas, with its wealth of accurate illustrations and its thorough though concise descriptive text, is presented to English speaking students and practitioners in the full confidence that it will prove of the greatest \alue to them.
