The text of Foundations of Embryology was at times rather advanced and technical but the pictures made the book really worth while! There are thousands of pictures (electron micrographs, light micrographs, and many others including numerous hand-made drawings from Patten himself). Although the majority of the photographs are in black and white, there is a section which contains colored versions of the most important pictures. This book is a must for undergraduate students of biology and professional students who must take courses in embryology.
