The reader is at once struck by the size and format of this volume. The book measures 17¾ X 12½ in. It contains 18 chapters of text, 4 appendices, and 27 plates. Overlaid tracings are applied to the first 21 plates.
The scope of the book is indicated by the subtitle "A Quantitative Study of Developmental and Evolutionary Mammalian Renal Architectonics." The presentation is intimately tied in with microdissection, the technique that Dr. Oliver has used so successfully in his studies of the form and function of the kidney.
The first and greater portion of the text is concerned with
