Langman's Medical Embryology is one of the standard texts on this topic:

Is this the sort of information you're looking for...?

Yes that is the sort of info I was after. I'm trying to supply a
student doing a degree in embryology in Cuba with an appropriate text

Thanks for the feedback.

In addition to the textbook already mentioned, here are some other
well known texts in embryology:
The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology (Developing
Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology)
Human Embryology and Developmental Biology
Human Embryology

One of more of these textbooks should meet your needs, but please let
me know if you need any additional suggestions.  Just post a Request
for Clarification, and I'll be happy to assist you further.

All the best to you and the student you're assisting,

I am a student at UT southwestern medical, and the cource is offered 
in the first year.. this is what we use

I would suggest using the syllabus and the CD entitled "Fundamentals 
of Human Embryology" (MacBaby v.6.0) to learn the material in this 
course.  A good textbook to use if you would like supplementary 
material and illustrations is The Developing Human, Clinically 
Oriented Embryology (7th edition, 2003) by K.L. Moore and K.V.L.
I suggest starting with the MacBaby program and viewing the animations 
of at least the early stages of development. You might want to look at 
the entire disk as an introduction. Then read one section of the 
syllabus and rerun the section of MacBaby dealing with that syllabus 
section. After that, do the set of review questions in the syllabus 
sections without referring to the answers. Treat the review questions 
like a test. After you have answered the questions, look at the 
answers and go back to study the parts you got incorrect.

You can search the full text of 40+ textbooks at NCBI Books.

The most relevant title in this case would be
Gilbert's Developmental Biology, whoch is just an OK text, in my
opinion, but they're adding mew books all the time.

If this had been available when I was in undergrad, I would have saved
a boatload on texts that I rarely opened.
