Excerpt from Synopsis of Human Anatomy: Being a Complete Compend of Anatomy, Including the Anatomy of the Viscera, and Numerous Tables

The demand for a new edition has afforded an opportunity to thoroughly revise the text and illustrations, and to add such changes of description and nomenclature as have been introduced into modern methods of teaching.

Whenever it seemed necessary or advisable sections have been entirely rewritten, but the same attention to conciseness and accuracy has been observed as in the former edition.

The size of the pages has been considerably enlarged and increased in number, and the illustrations increased from 76 to 171. Many improved cuts replace those used in the former edition and full-page engraved plates have been inserted in the text where they will be most serviceable.

In its preparation, the last editions of both Morris and Gray have been freely consulted, so that it can be used with either of these standard works.

As in the former edition, although prepared particularly for students, sufficient descriptive matter has been added to render it valuable to the busy practitioner, particularly in the sections upon the Viscera, Special Senses, Vascular System, the Nervous System, and Surgical Anatomy.

Special attention has been given to the anatomy of the brain and nervous system, which will be found to compare favorably with the descriptions in larger works.

The author has been much gratified to observe the tenacity with which students and physicians have retained the work for reference.
