Bood Review by R. A. Knouff

Recent contributions in two widely different aspects of human development have induced the author to prepare a second edition of this well known and widely used text. Since the publication of the first edition in 1946 younger embryos than any heretofore known have been recovered. These include cleavage, blastodermic vesicle and implantation stages. Chapter 4 entitled Cleavage, Germ Layers arid the Establishment of the Embryonic Body, and Chapter 6 dealing with Fetal membranes and Placenta have been extensively reviewed and expanded on the basis of this new material. The notable recent progress in the handling of congenital cardiovascular defects has empha- sized the importance of a thorough knowledge of the development of the heart and large blood vessels. The material on this subject in Chapter 19 has been expanded and a number of illustrations in color added. Only minor changes have been made in other chapters of the book. However, a supplement to the bibliography has been added which includes pertinent articles published between 1945 and 1952. This book is designed for medical students and medical practitioners but it will serve as a useful reference in elementary courses in embryology.
