Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789401355, Hardcover)

Here is an entirely new kind of dictionary -- one that is packed with superb, full-color photographs and illustrations, plus thousands of anatomical terms. The Visual Dictionary of the Skeleton will give you instant access to the specialized vocabulary relating to skeletons in a way that is clear, informative, and easy to understand. If you know what a particular type of skeleton or skeletal feature looks like but don't know its name, then turn to the labels around the illustrations. Alternatively, if you know a term but don't know exactly what it refers to, then the comprehensive index will direct you to the illustration that bears the name. This volume forms part of a series that, like the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Books, builds thematically into a comprehensive and exquisitely illustrated treasure trove of words and pictures providing high-quality information for readers of all ages.
