Altogether, It Is unauestionably the most complete

been presented to the student, and forme a striking

To commend Gray's Anatomy to the medleal pr»-

complete and conveniently arranged text book ef Its

has learned as a tradition of the elders, and verified
by personal experience.— JT. T. Med. Qautt*, ]>ee.

The object of this work is to present to the anatomical student a clear and coaeise deeerlptloB
of that which he is expected to observe in an ordinary couise of dissections. The author has
endeavored to omit unnecessary details, and to present the subject in the form which many years'
experience has shown him to be the most convenient and intelligible to the student. In the
revision of the present edition, he has sedulously labored to render the volume more worthy of
the favor with which it has heretofore been received.

^^ A SYSTEM OF HUMAN ANATOMY, General and Special. Edited

by W. U. QoBBKCHT, Jtt,D., I^ofessor of Generaland SargioalAnatoifty in the Medical Col-
lege of Ohio. Illiutrated with three hundred and ninety-aeven engravinge on wood. In

ther, $5 00.
The publiaher trnsta that the well-earned reputation of this long-established faTOrite will be
more than maintained by the present edition. Besides a very thorough revision by the author, it
h^a been moet oarefuily examined by the editor, and the efiforts of both have been directed to in-
troducing everything which increased experience in its use has suggested as desirable to render it
» complete text-book for those seeking to obtain or to renew an acquaintance with Human Ana-
tomy. The amount of additions which it has thus received may be estimated from the fact that
tii«% present edition contains over one-fourth more matter than the last, rendering a smaller type
and an enlarged page requisite to keep the volume within a convenient sise. The author has not
only thus added largely to the work, but he has also made alterations throughout, wherever there
appealed the opportunity of improving the arrangement or style, so as to present every fact in its
most appropriate manner, and to render the whole as clear and intelligible as possible. The editoi
ha« exercised the utmost caution to obtain entire' accuracy in the text, and has largely increased
the number of illustrations, of which there are about one hundred and fitly more in this edition
than in the last, thufl bringing distinctly before the eye of the student everything of interest or
liaportaace. ^

Dr. Keen, the American editor of this work, in hie
preftee, ftay*: "In preunting tiiin Aiuerioan edition
of * Heath () Practical Aoatomy,' I feel that I have

been liintrumeatal in supplying a want long felt for
a real dissector's manaal," and this assertion of its
editor we deem is fully Jastified, after an examlna-
Moa of its contents, for it is really an excellent work.
Indeed, we do not hesitate to say, the best of its class
with which we are acquainted ; resembling Wilson

In reading this work, one is forcibly Impressed with
the great pains the author lakes to Impress the snb-
Jeet upon the mind of the student. He is full of rare
and pleasing little devices to aid memory in main-
taining its hold upon the slippery slopes of anatomy.

It appears to as certain that, as a guide in disseo*
tioB, and aa a work oontaiaing facta of anatomy in
brief and easily understood form, this maaual Is
eomplete. This work contains, also, very perfect
lllastrations of parts which can thus be mure easily
understood and studied ; in this respect it compares
favorably with works of much greater pretension.

Such nanoals of anatomy are always favorite works
with medical 8tQ4eata. We would earnestly recom-
mend this one to their attention ; it has excellences
which make it valuable as a guide in diftsecUng, as
well as in studying anatomy.— ifu/afo Medical and
Surgical Jvurnaly Jan. 1871.

The ill St English edition was issued about six years
ago, and was favorably received not only on account
of the great reputation of its author, but also from
its great value and excellence as a guide-book to the
practical anatomist The American edition has un-
dergone some alterations and additions which will
no doubt enhance its value materialiy. The conve*
nience of the student has been carefully consulted in
the arrangement of the text, and the directions given
for the prosecution of certain dissections will be duly
appreciated.— CaiMula iMnott, Feb. 1871.

This is an excellent Dissector's Manual ; one which
Is not merely a descriptive manual of anatomy, but
a guide to the student at4he dissecting table^ euabling
him, though a beginner, to proseonte his work intel-
ligently, and without assistance. The American edi-
tor has made many valuable alterations and addi-
tions to the original work.— ^m. Joum. o/ohtMriet,

A MANUAL OF PHYSIOLOGY. Edited by W. Morrant Baker,

M.D., F.R.G.S. A new American from the eighth and improved London edition With
about two hnndred and fifty illustrations. In one large and handsome royal 12mo. vol-
ume. Cloth, $3 26 ; leather, $3 76. {Now Ready.)
Kirkes* Physiology has long been known as a concise and exceedingly convenient text-book,
presenting within a narrow compass all that is important for the student. The rapidity with
which successive editions have followed each other in England has enabled the editor to keep it
thoroughly on a level with the changes and new discoveries made in the science, and the eighth
edition, of which the present is a reprint, has appeared so recently that it may be regarded as
the latest accessible exposition of the subject.

On the whole, there is very little in the book
which either the student or practftloner will notflnd
of practical valne and consistent with oar present
knowledge of this rapidly changing science ; and we
have no hesitation in expre«Mng our opinioa that
this eighth edition is one of the best handbooks on
phyKiology which we have in our language.— jY. Y.
Med, Record, April IS, 1873.

This volume might well be used to replace many
of the physiological teat- books in use in this coun-
try, it represents more accurately than the works
of Dalton or Flint, the preheat state of onr knowl-
edge of moat phyniological qdestloDV, while it in
much lees bulky aad far more readable than the lar-

ger text-books of Carpenter or Marshall. The book
is admirably adapted to be placed in the hands of
stud^uiM.'— Boston Med. and Surg. Joum., April 10;

In its enlarged form it is, in our opinion, still the
best book on physiology, most useful to the studenL

This is undoubtedly the best work for etudeats of
physiology extant.— CfncfniKrtiJfcd. AiBtna, Sept 'T3

Pr^aee to the Fifth Edition,
In preparing the preeent edition of this work, the general plan and arrangement of th« previous
^diitions have been retained, sc^far as they have been found useful and adapted to the purposes of
■a text-book for students of medicine. The incessant advance of all the natural and physical
soiences, never more active than within the last five years, has furnished many valuable aids to
tlie special investigations of the physiologist ; and the progress of physiological research, during
^lie same period, has required a careful revision of the entire work, and the modification or re-
arrangement of many of its parts. At this day, nothing is regarded as of any value in natural
soience which is not based upon direct and intelligible observation or experiment ; and, accord-
ingly, the discussion of doubtful or theoretical questions has been avoided, as a general rule, in
^he present volume, while new facts, from whatever source, if fully established, have been added
and incorporated with the results of previous investigation. A number of new illustrations have
l>«en introduced, and a few of the older ones, which seemed to be no longer useful, have been
omitted. In all the changes and additions thus made, it has been the aim of the writer to make the
book, in its present form, a faithful exponent of the actual conditions of physiological science.
Hbw Tors, October, 1871.
In this, the standard text-book on Physiology, all that is needed to maintain the favor with which
it is regarded by the profession, is the author's assurance that it has been thoroughly revised and
brought up to a level with the advanced science of the day. To aocomplish this has required
some enlargement of the work» but no advance has been made in the price.

The fifth edition of this truly valuable work on
Human Physiology comes to as with many valuable
Improvements and additiona As a text-book of
physiology the work of Prot Dalton has long been
well known as one of the best which could be placed
In the hands of student or practitioner. Prof. Dalton
has. In the several editions of his work heretofore
published, labored to keep step with the advancement
in science, and the last edition shows by its improve-
ments on former ones that he is determined to main-
tain the high standard of his work. We predict for
the present edition increased favor, though this work
has long been the favorite standard.— Ju/oto Jfaef .
and Surg. Journal, April, 1872.

An extended notice of a work so generally and te-
▼orably known as this is unaeoessary. It Is Justly
regarded as one of the most valuable text-books on
the subject in the English language.— i9^ LouU Med.
Archives, May, 1873.

We know no treatise in physiology so clear, com-
plete, well assimilated, and perfectly digested, as
Dalton's. Re never writes cloudily or dubloosly, or
In mere quotation. He assimilates all his material,
and from It constructs a homogeneous transparent
argument, which is always honest and well Informed,
and hides neither truth, ti^norance, nor doubt, so far
aH either belongs to the subject la hand. — Brtt. Med.
Journal, March SS, 1872.

Dr. Dalton's treatise is well known, and by many
highly esteemed in this country. It is, indeed, a good
elementary treailne on the subject it professes to
teach, and may safely be put into the hands of Eng-
lish students. It has one great merit— It Is clear, and,
on the whole, admirably Illustrated. The part we
have always esteemed most highly is that relating
to Embryology. The diagrams given of the various
stages of development give a clearer view of the sub-
ject than do those la general use in this country ; and
the text may be said to be, upon the whole, equally
clear.— London Ued. Times and Cffizette, March 23,

Dalton's Physiology is already, and deservedly,
the favorite text-book of the majority of American
medical students. Treating a most interesting de-
partment of science in his own peculiarly lively and
fascinating style. Dr. Dalton carries his reader along
without effort, and at the same time Impresses upon
his mind the truths taught much more successfully
than If they were burled beneath a multitude of
words.— ITan^as City Med. Journal^ April, 1872.

Professor Dalton is regarded Justly as the authority
in this eonntry on physiological subjects, and the
fifth edition Of bis valuable work fully justifies the
exalted opinion the medical world has of his labors.
This last edition Is greatly enlarged.— F*r^<»<a OUn-
