Atlas of Human Anatomy

by Frank H. Netter (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
Now in its second edition, this is undoubtedly the best single-volume medical
atlas available today, the only better resource being Netter's classic
eight-volume set, published in 13 physical volumes over 33 years starting in
1959 and originally called CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations after the
publisher. (The name was changed to Netter's Collection of Medical Illustrations
by the new publisher, Novartis.) Once again, Netter's masterly artwork has been
faithfully reproduced, though the first edition (LJ 12/89) has been updated to
reflect current anatomical knowledge and to incorporate new cross-sectional
images to assist in the recognition of current "scanned" images. Organized by
anatomical regions, the illustrations are colorful, easily defined, and clearly
labeled, and the book closes with a very easy-to-use 48-page index. Highly
recommended for public and academic libraries.

"The care with which this volume was assembled so elegantly...is itself a stroke
of genius." -Review of previous edition in Surgical Neurology
