This book should appeal to all practitioners as well as to dermatologists, for the material is arranged by regional groupings, an arrangement that is useful for purposes of differential diagnosis. There are, for example, 22 illustrations of different scalp lesions, both common and unusual diseases, and 12 each of diseases of the lip and ear. Also grouped together are lesions of the upper limb, lower limb, face and neck, nails, mouth, and lip. In addition, there are special chapters devoted to leprosy and to the exanthems. A brief account of the etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment accompanies most of the illustrations. Of the 596 photographs, only 25, grouped into 7 figures, are in color; these are small but most of them are good. The others, of larger size in black and white, are as excellent as such illustrations can be. The pages are large, 8 ½ by 11 inches, on
