THE FOURTH figure of the sixth Chapter.


This figure represents the skull lying more on its left side so that some of its base can be viewed. For the sake of some of the sutures, we have removed the jugal bone with a saw. You will readily learn about these sutures in the figure legend which follows, as well as from the text of this and some subsequent chapters. This figure will also serve well for recognizing the bones of the upper maxilla and showing certain foramina in the bones.
