A Review of Human Osteology—A Laboratory and Field Manual Third Edition
This is a book that the author should be proud of for its success in North American osteology. This success can be measured by the fact that it is in its third edition and the first two went through their sixth and fourth printings, respectively, since it was first published in 1971. This third edition (unlike the second) is completely revised and updated throughout. It is 40 pages longer and contains 54 tables and 190 figures (11 tables and 32 figures more than the 1979 edition). The font size is larger and the book is available in both spiral and bound forms. While I personally preferred the bound form, my students disagreed.
