Jamieson E. B. MD.:  Illustrations of Regional Anatomy Section I Central Nervous System, Section II Head and Neck, Section III Abdomen, Section IV Pelvis, Section V Thorax, Section VI Upper Limb, Section VII Lower Limb
Book Number: 44739
Edinburgh 1947 and Section VII is 1946 8vo. Blue wrappers (except for Section VII which is green). Colour Illustrations throughout. Sections I to VI are the Seventh Edition, and Section VII is the sixth Edition. Section I Central Nervous System 51 plates, Section II Head and Neck 64 plates, Section III Abdomen 44 plates, Section IV Pelvis 35 plates, Section V Thorax 32 plates, Section VI Upper Limb 42 plates, Section VII Lower Limb 52 plates. The Author states that the first edition was pallid compared to this later edition, as the colour wasn't as good as only a few colour blocks were chosen and the paper was chosen so the students could add colour with chalk, the second edition was the same as the first, the third edition was destroyed by fire, the fourth edition was the same as the first and second and ran out quickly, the fifth edition was larger but under 'paper-control' the sixth edition also suffered through a fire. In the seventh edition the colour blocks had been remade and corrections made.
