Preface to Third Edition
In making the revision for a new edition of this book it did not seem desirable essentially to change its form or scope. Effort has been concentrated on improving the presentation of the original subject matter and bringing it up to date, rather than on its expansion. The entire book has been reset to a greater page width which has permitted enlarging certain of the illustrations that, in earlier editions, had proved to be too greatly reduced. With the generous cooperation of the publishers several of the important plates on the cardiovascular system have been remade to a larger scale and with color. A number of new illustrations have been drawn for sections where experience has shown that students needed additional graphic assistance in interpreting their laboratory material. It is hoped that these changes will all contribute toward making the book as a whole more serviceable.

Preface to First Edition
This book represents an endeavor to set forth in brief and simple form the fundamental facts of mammalian development. The thread of the story and the illustrations have been based on pig embryos because of their value and availability as laboratory material. But special stress has been laid on the embryological phenomena involved instead of on the details of specific conditions existing in the pig. Throughout the book, every efTort has been made to present developmental processes as dynamic events with emphasis on their sequence and significance, rather than as a series of still pictures of selected stages.
Obviously no book can deal fully with all phases of development, even in a single form, and still remain serviceable as a text. As this book is for the student, it has seemed expedient, for the sake of clearness and simplicity, to omit many things which I should like to have included. My primary aim has been to write an account in which the essentials stand out adequately interpreted and unobscured by a multiplicity of details â€” to lay a foundation which can be further built upon in accordance with special needs or individual desires.

The pleasantest thing about working on this book has been the generous aid I have received from many sources. Throughout the preparation of the initial edition the encouragement, criticism, and suggestions of my colleagues, Dr. F. C. Waite and Dr. S. W. Chase, were of the greatest help. In the preparation of material and in making the illustrations for the first edition the beautifully accurate work of Miss Kathryn Toulmin was of inestimable value. In making the new drawings added in the third edition I was fortunate in securing the unusually able assistance of Mrs. Dorothy Van Eck.
Dr. G. L. Streeter and Dr. C. H. Heuser of the Carnegie Institute allowed me free use of their extensive collection of young embryos and generously gave me many photographs made from their material. To Mrs. Charles S, Minot I am indebted for permission to use several figures from the late Professor Minot's works. The accrediting in the figure legends of these and other borrowed illustrations by no means covers my obligation to other writers. Practically the entire bibliography is a statement of indebtedness for information and ideas.
I wish I might acknowledge individually the helpful services rendered by many of my students, but they are too numerous. Several reconstructions which I have used directly or indirectly have been largely their work. Of even greater assistance have been their suggestions during the shaping of the work â€” suggestions of especial value because they were made from a point of view difficult for an instructor to appreciate without such aid.
To The Blakiston Company, I am indebted for much helpful cooperation and especially for their liberality with regard to the number and quality of the illustrations.
No person other than my wife could have deciphered and put into usable form manuscript of the character I frequently turned over to her for revision and typing. Without her generous help the preparation of the text would have been much more arduous and long delayed.
