Completely revised and updated edition (1990) of this classic work, first published in 1936.
...most certainly should be in the hands of every veterinarian specializing in the field of dentistry. It also should serve as an excellent resource of information on variations and diseases of the teeth for those working with a variety of animal species, including laboratory animals. Journal of Veterinary Medical Education "The pictures and beautiful illustrations complement the text remarkably well, and more than a thousand references make it unique in its field." Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association "This magnificent description of normal dentition and dental problems found in all species of animals is superb. The natural history that is included with each animal class is very fascinating and enlightening...For any one interested in teeth, this is an unbelievable collection." John E. Saidla, Quarterly Review of Biology "This marvelous tome, while mainly concerned with the dentition of living mammals, contains some mention of the paleontological literature. Moreover, whereas the original book was restricted to mammals, the authors of this edition have thought the non-mammals to be of too much interest and importance to ignore completely...at long last, available again. It should continue to have a wide readership from anthropology to zoology, including dentists, veterinarians, and of course, dental anthropologists." Daris R. Swindler, Dental Anthropology Newsletter "This is the world's standard text on comparative odontology. If you deal with animals and teeth, this text is a must. Well written." Journal of the American Association of Forensic Dentists
