This antique text contains a very simple introduction to the anatomy of the human brain for the beginner. It uses the brain of the sheep because of its general availability, relative simplicity, and practical identity to that of man. This text was intended primarily as a laboratory manual for the student, and briefly reviews the development of the brain, with particular reference to the nervous structure and its evolution. This text was first published in 1913, and, as such, contains information that is somewhat dated. This text will, however, be of much value to those with an interest in the history and development of cerebral science, and makes for a worthy addition to collections of antique literature of this ilk. The chapters of this book include: 'Phylogeny', 'Ontogeny', 'Removal of the Brain', 'Dorsal and Lateral Surfaces', 'Ventral Surface', 'Sagittal Section', 'The Corpus Callosum and the Lateral Ventricle', 'The Interbrain and the Brain Stem', 'Horizontal and Thansverse Sections', and 'Summary'.
