ANATOMIE DES MENSCHEN, EIN
LEHRBUCH FOR STUDIERENDE UND
XRZTE. By Hermann Braus. Revised
by Curt Elze. vii f 832 pages, 545 figures. Second edition, Vol. 3. Periphere
Leitungsbahnen I1 Centrales Nervensystem Sinnesorgane. DM 69.--. SpringerVerlag, Berlin, 1960.
Braus’s Anatomie has represented the
best tradition in choice of subject matter
and excellence in illustration. This third
volume has been considerably lengthened
and expanded by Curt Elze without disrupting the original plan of the work. The
first 387 pages deal with the course of the
nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatics. The
position and relationships of the nerves
and vessels are frequently referred to the
living body by means of diagrams and
schemata. An extensive table gives the
nerve and blood supply of the muscles in
a lucid fashion which can be understood
at a glance. The veins are not given in
detail for many parts of the body and the
treatment of the lymphatic system is surprisingly brief, most of it contained in a
7-page table.
Somewhat more than half the volume
is devoted to the central nervous system
and the sense organs. A valuable feature
is the printing of separate drawings of the
fiber tracts and the cell groups on the
same or facing pages to illustrate sections
of the brainstem. The coverage is quite
complete and functional implications are
brought out without stress on controversial
aspects. The work is designed for use by
preclinical and clinical students of medicine as well as by practicing physicians.
It has sections on embryology and histology, the latter with reference to light microscopy.

The dedication of this volume “To belabored students and their time-pressed
instructors” reveals something of the sympathetic and understanding point of view
which is a characteristic of the author.
He is one of our younger professional
Anatomists teaching at George Washington University with well-deserved success.
This is a practical book intended to fit
the needs of medical students in this
country where the time allotted to the
study of embryology has been drastically
curtailed. The material is presented in a
manner which is meant to be supplemented by the courses in both gross and
microscopic anatomy. It is a synopsis of
the important features and events in human prenatal development. Many details
which would logically be studied in these
other courses are omitted.
The lucid drawings are all original and
by the author. They are based on classical
illustrations from many sources but are
adapted and simplified, not merely made
diagrammatic. Some embryologists may
take issue with the author’s generalizations and the inevitable omissions, but the
result is a homogeneous presentation in
which the student is less likely to be lost
than he would be in a more elaborate
account. The large page makes possible
a grouping of illustrations in a sequence
easy to follow at a glance.
There is an index and a brief list of
authoritative references for supplemental
reading; the modern format is attractive
and the price reasonable.

The authors and same publishers produced a book on “Elements of Gynecology’’
10 years ago. While working toward a
Lehrbuch of obstetrical and operative
gynecology, the author found it worth
while to publish this atlas of the normal
