The present monograph deals with a systematic approach to a quantitative morphologic analysis of the architecture of the human lung. It discusses general problems of methodology and reports the results obtained on limited but carefully chosen material, which allowed, in particular, the derivation of reliable dimensional models of this organ. These studies were started a few years ago, while the author worked in the laboratory of Dr. André F. Cournand and Dr. Dickinson W. Richards in close collaboration with Dr. Domingo M. Gomez on questions of correlation of structure and function in the lung.
