It is not the object of this work to teach plain anatomical facts; its aim is to show the relation of structure to function, whether it is normal function or function disturbed or impaired by injury or disease. It is explanatory and utilitarian in character, and not encyclopedic.

Anatomy Live turns our modern notions of the dissecting table on its head -using anatomical theatre as a means of obtaining a fresh perspective on representations of the body, conceptions of subjectivity and own knowledge about science and the stage.
by David Hayes Agnew - J. B. Lippincott & Co.
The work has been prepared with a single eye to the faithful economy of the Student's time. The minute anatomy of parts and the smaller ramifications of the nervous and vascular systems were omitted, belonging more properly to systematic treatises.

The main object of studying anatomy is to obtain a mental image of the human body rather than to memorize numerous terms. Pictures of dissections aid the imagination of the student enormously and thus guide his work from the known to the unknown.

This book represents a selection of experimental matter, adapted to the age of elementary students of the subject and which will present the facts of physiology in a concrete form. This is an attempt to place the subject on an experimental basis.
