Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The British Gray's is a colorful, stylishly illustrated version of the classic anatomy reference with commentary and essays by specialists in their fields, and at nearly twice the price of the American edition one would expect no less. This current edition features the conventional divisions of study with numerous classification changes, including new sections on surface anatomy and neonatal anatomy. Much of the information provided reflects the tremendous changes and advances in molecular biology and imaging which have occurred since 1989. Includes photographs as well as diagrams and drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From Barnes & Noble
A standard reference for more than 100 years, this book contains nearly everything you need to know about the human body -- from its simplest parts to its most complicated systems. An enlightening voyage of discovery into the nature of our bodies.

Meet the Author

Early on in his career as a doctor, Henry Gray (c.1827-1861) showed a particular interest in anatomy. Aged just 20 he became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons.
After the award of fellowships by the Royal Society and the RCS, he was appointed house surgeon at St George's Hospital, London, and then lecturer in anatomy at its medical school.
Gray died tragically young at the age of 34, after contracting a severe form of smallpox.

    Where are the illustrations?

    I had the hard copy at one time. It was essential in my work. This publication is nothing like the one i had. I wish i had not wasted my time or money
