tion it would not havebeen possible to produce the work in the manner inwhich it has been, or in the short time, less thanthree months, available for printing and making thecollotypes. All the collotypes and most of the illus-trations in the text were done by them. A few ofthe illustrations in the text were done by the NorthernPhoto Engraving Company, of Manchester. Lastly, I have to thank Mr. Walter Whiteheadfor his encouraging stimulation, put in the character-istic but terse phrase, Peg away. I have done soduring intervals snatched from the routine work of arather busy session, and endeavoured to give as theresult of his often repeated minimum stimulus themaximum response. In any case, like the heart, theresponse is the best that I am capable of, and myonly wish is that the perusal of this work will giveas much pleasure to the reader as its production hasgiven to the writer.

/tFTER the writings of Galen, the next work of importance on1~ anatomy is that of MONDINUS, who was Professor in Bologna,and died there in 1318. His written works were printed in 1478.One edition forms part of the Fasciculus Medicinoe of JOANNES AKETHAM (1494). It has a woodcut, attributed to the VenetianSchool of Bellini, representing the anatomist dissecting the humanbody, which is, according to R. Willis, the first representation of thekind that exists. In the edition of his works with commentaries byJacobus Carpus, i.e. Berengarius Carpus (Bonon. 1521)—a quarto of527 pages—there is an excellent description of the heart and itsvalves— Valvulas in vasorum cordis orificiis, ostiola vocat (Douglas).The edition Anatomia Mundini, by Io. Dryandrum (Marpurgi 1537),consists of 67 pages, illustrated by several rather crude woodcuts.
