The mere fact that this is the seventh edition attests the continued popularity of this work. Intended primarily for the practicing physician, it places stress on the detailed technic of treating the individual dermatoses. The large number of formulas will seem rather confusing to the American dermatologist. Such drugs as cignolin, calmitol, thigenol, captol, bromocoll—to mention but a few—are undoubtedly much more familiar to our German colleagues. The section on physical therapeutics—particularly that on x-rays and radium—is too condensed to be used as a reliable guide. On the other hand the chapters on gonorrhea and syphilis contain almost everything that the practitioner needs to know in the management of these disorders.
