Pages where the terms "Historic" (textbooks, papers, people, recommendations) appear on this site, and sections within pages where this disclaimer appears, indicate that the content and scientific understanding are specific to the time of publication. This means that while some scientific descriptions are still accurate, the terminology and interpretation of the developmental mechanisms reflect the understanding at the time of original publication and those of the preceding periods, these terms, interpretations and recommendations may not reflect our current scientific understanding.     (More?

Handatlas der Entwicklungsgeschichte des Menschen - Volume 1

(Atlas of the Development of Man Volume 1)

--Mark Hill 09:10, 22 October 2011 (EST) This textbook was published in 1907 in the German language. The first volume is more of a textbook of early development, while the second volume is an atlas of images. None of the images from the first volume have yet been added, while the second volume images have all been added to the site as Atlas of the Development of Man 2.
