Anatomy of the Human Skeleton

£14.99

Product description

"In this book I have ventured to wander in some degree from the well-trodden road and to lead the reader by other ways to the comprehension of his subject. My intention has been to induce him to think of the bones as they exist in the body rather than as they lie on the table before him, and to do this I have laid stress because he must use the prepared specimens on the meaning of small details and on the relations of the bone, and have relegated the pure description of the dry bone to a secondary place :in other words, each part of the skeleton has been used as a peg on which to hang a consideration of the neighbouring structures, in the hope that this may afford a new point of view to the reader and enable him to grasp the intimate connection between them."

**Fair condition. No dust jacket. Some wear and tear to cover but binding still reasonable. Internally all intact but some discolouration commensurate with age. Original owner's name inscribed on inside front cover.**
