This is a unique Atlas containing twenty plates of frontal sections of a head and neck cut at almost exactly the same plane from side to side and sectioned in parallel slices about 2 cm. apart,. The results give a very outstanding presentation in actual life-size photographs of the relationship of anatomic structures of the head and neck in the frontal plane. Five key-figure illustrations The plates are very clear and well-labeled. precede the plates which serve to orient the reader. The contrast of tissues in the photographs is excellent and makes for easy identity of the anatomic structures. While the book is limited in its scope, the authors have made a very valuable contribution to the field of anatomy in helping make very much clearer 1236
