    Abstract

    THIS work gives an account of the arrangement of the superficial muscles of the head and neck in the different races of men. The muscles are described, and a series of measurements given for each in the different races. The general conclusion is what one would expect; namely, that these muscles of the superficial fascia are most marked in the black races, least so in the white, while in the yellow races they are intermediate in their development. The facial muscles of the negro are found to closely resemble those of the gorilla in their great development. M. Chudzinski draws attention to the diagramatic manner in which the muscles of expression are usually figured, and notes particularly certain very superficial layers which it is customary to remove in defining the edges of the muscles. The twenty-five figures, which are given at the end of the text, illustrate the comparative development of the muscles as seen in dissections of the heads of different races.
