Anatomical Eponyms

£45.00

Product description

Bailliere, Tindall & Cox. 1946. Dobson, Jessie. Foreword by Jones, F. Wood. Condition: very good. Very slight fading, marks and signs of wear on cover. Browning and foxing on pages. Signs of wear at edges of some pages. Spine still in excellent condition. Contains black and white frontispiece.

"At no time in its history has the Science of Human Anatomy been in so great a danger of losing its best traditions as it is to-day. The policy of eliminating all eponyms from anatomical nomenclature has deprived the student of his main incentive to learn of the history and of the great masters of his subject. For student and teacher alike, Human Anatomy is in danger of becoming a subject that, reduced to its barest utilitarian limits, is to be learned and taught merely as a part of essential academic routine. A subject that has lost its traditions is like to lose its soul.

Dobson's Anatomical Eponyms is a work undertaken for an ideal - the ideal of restoring that human interest which stimulated former generations of students in their study of Human Anatomy. But it has achieved far more than the satisfying of an ideal, for it has provided an indispensable work of reference for all those who care to follow in the footsteps of the great masters of Anatomy in seeking to add to our knowledge of the structure and function of the human body." - F. Wood Jones, Foreword
