An Atlas of Human Anatomy free pdf Excerpt from An Atlas of Human Anatomy: For Students and Physicians The science of human anatomy is purely descriptive in its methods, the field it covers is not very extensive, and its boundaries are sharply limited- it is, therefore, one of the few sciences in which something closely verging on finality and completeness has been attained. Even, however, if no new anatomical data are likely to be forthcoming, there is yet scope for originality in the method of presentation of those data of which the science now consists- and originality of this kind Professor Toldt's "Atlas of Human Anatomy" exhibits in a high degree. In the many admirable manuals of human anatomy now extant in English, the illustrations, even when numerous, as they are often, and when good, as they are occasionally, form a mere supplement - usually a very imperfect supplement - to the text. Atlases of anatomy, and useful atlases, also exist in English, but all are quite fragmentary. Some, like the well-known and valuable, but somewhat antiquated, "Illustrations of Dissections," consist of a series of pictures of selected regions carefully prepared on the cadaver: these are models for the imitation of the student in his own dissecting work, but are not of much value for private study. Others, like Bellamy's English edition of Braune's atlas of frozen sections of the human body, present a small number of anatomical facts from a striking and unfamiliar point of view. But among English works, an accurate pictorial representation of all the data of human anatomy, carefully drawn to scale from actual specimens, and arranged suitably for systematic study, has hitherto been lacking. Whilst a true knowledge of anatomy, a knowledge that will through life supply the needs of the physician and the surgeon in their practical work, can be obtained only in the dissecting-room, the student's labours with scalpel and forceps must be preceded and supplemented by systematic private study. Now, for this purpose, the textual descriptive treatise is not alone sufficient- or, if sufficient, it is so at an excessive expenditure of time and labour. Both in his work preparatory to dissection and in his revision of his anatomical knowledge subsequent to dissection, the energy of the student will be enormously economized if he has at hand a graphic representation of every structure named and described in his systematic treatise. An increased use of the visual or graphic method, both in the acquirement and in the revivification of knowledge, is a feature of the age in all educational departments- but this English translation of Professor Toldt's work is, as far as the English-speaking races are concerned, the first adequate application of the method to the study of human anatomy. In speaking of the finality and completeness of anatomical science, one exception must be made, and this exception relates to anatomical terminology, which, though nearly completed, has not yet attained finality. Had there been a universal anatomical nomenclature - a nomenclature, that is, adopted by, or even fully intelligible to, anatomists of all nationalities - an English edition of this work would have been superfluous. Anatomy, however, like all other sciences, has suffered from the dispersion of tongues that ensued on the Renascence, when the good and the evil of mediaevalism became inextricably confounded, and were cast away together, and the inestimable gift of a language common to the learned of all lands was lost for ever. The German-speaking peoples have a fairly complete and fairly pure Latin anatomical nomenclature, needing, however, to be eked out here and there by the vernacular- whilst in England, as in France, a strange and bastard dialect, half Latin and half vernacular, has come into use. Uncouth jargon as it is, being current and familiar, it is not likely in England and America ever to be replaced by the more consistent terminology in use in the anatomical schools of ."
