(1) Surgical Anatomy of the Horse (2) Le Cheval


    (1) SINCE 1832, when William Percival produced the first work exclusively devoted to the anatomy of the horse, considerable advances have been made in the methods of teaching veterinary anatomy; but it cannot be said that the production of anatomical literature has been correspondingly abundant in this country. The veterinarian has not had his time too heavily taxed by the examination of frequent new publications. Consequently, he will welcome with all the more interest the first part of a “Surgical Anatomy of the Horse,” from the pen of Mr. J. T. Share-Jones, of the Liverpool Veterinary School. The present volume deals with the anatomy of the head and neck, as applied to the surgery of these regions; and it is to be followed by further parts devoted, in like manner, to the rest of the body.
