This volume combines, in a practical manner, the subjects of surgical anatomy and operative surgery, because a knowledge of the one is essential to the proper study of the other. Drawings have been used largely for the purpose of illustration.

The author's aim was to furnish medical students with a clear, accurate, and concise account of the anatomy of the brain, to be used as a guide. He decided to omit minor details, and to exclude subjects which are still matters of controversy.

Anatomy and physiology are closely integrated both theoretically and practically. Anatomical information provides clues about probable functions and physiological mechanisms can be explained only in terms of the underlying anatomy.

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.
