With the appearance of Volume 3, the atlas of human anatomy is completed. The plan for content, scope and design given in the preface to volume 1 was also a guideline for the structure of this volume. We have endeavored to make the topographical-anatomical and functional relationships between the head and neck clear. The series of images of brain, spinal cord and sensory organs was also compiled from the same point of view. According to the possibilities, the connection with the hull was considered. For the illustration of the central nervous system, we chose the parts and areas accessible to preparation and inspection, and refrained from the schematic representation of the pathways and various nuclei. These findings must be kept in the relevant textbooks. We owe a great and heartfelt thanks to the scientific draftsmen, the employees of the publisher and the manufacturing companies as well as members of the Anatomical Institutes to which the authors belong. For the style of documenting the anatomy of man, the masterly skills of the scientific draftsman, Mr. Horst Schmidt (Halle / Saale), provided a solid foundation. This was certified by numerous reviewers of the 1st and 2nd volumes. His universally recognized ability strengthened the long-standing cooperation. We are aware of the great debt of gratitude towards him. In the eye section, Renate Welt Herschel (Leipzig) took over the graphic design. Her many years of experience in the field of the presentation of clinical ophthalmological findings have enabled.
