This volume of the magnificent series of the major anatomy and pathology of the systems of the human organism illustrated by Dr. Netter is a fine example of the high quality of this series. The illustrations are beautifully reproduced with great clarity. The drawings attempt the difficult task of illustration of the relationship between form and function and succeed well in graphically portraying present concepts of upper gastrointestinal physiology. The charts on mastication, vomiting, hunger and deglutition are particularly excellent examples of the graphic arts in the explanation of such complex processes. The text accompanying the illustrations is succinct, precise and well written.
