Third edition of a popular account of human anatomy which Monro had originally published in 1726. Unillustrated it was intended to complement his demonstrations on human anatomy which he had begun in 1720 at Surgeons' Hall in Edinburgh Medical School ( he would petition Edinburgh town council in 1725 for a more secure teaching location after accusations of grave robbing by he & his students led to rioting by the locals ). The book was popular due to Monro's 'fine observational and expository skills'. [DNB].
