Preface

Sir Arthur Keith (1866 - 1955)
Sir Arthur Keith (1866 - 1955)

Fifty years ago it was possible for a teacher in a Winter course of Lectures to lay all the essential facts of Embryology and Comparative Anatomy before his pupils ; to-day fifty courses were not sufficient, so boundless have these subjects grown. Yet, in spite of their rapid growth, they have been retained in Higher Examinations in Human Anatomy by our Universities and Colleges without any principle being laid down to guide teachers and taught as to the scope required. No book dealing with these subjects exists to afford a precedent. The criterion which the Author applied in determining the scope of this work he believes will be accepted by pupils, teachers, and examiners. The course of Demonstrations, of which this book is the substance, was given under the walls of a great hospital to students preparing to work within its wards. Hence, each fact taught the student was necessarily one which was capable of application in his life's work or by the possession of which he became a better workman. The extent to which each subject was dealt with was determined by its practical importance. In brief, clinical utility was the criterion employed. The way to the wards is the road to the examination room, and the right preparation for the one is the best qualification the student can take with him for the other.


The Author hopes he has prepared a work which will prove useful not only to students proceeding for Higher Examinations in Anatomy and Surgery but also to men actively engaged in practice. Every day conditions come under their notice which can be explained only by a reference to Embryology. He has sought to sketch as briefly and clearly as possible the history of the developing human body. History is the best key to an understanding of the present conditions of a country; the Embryologist and Comparative Anatomist are the dual historians of the human body.


The Author is deeply indebted to Mr. F. G-. Parsons for revision of his proofs and numerous suggestions and corrections.


December, 1901.
