This edition is notable for the inclusion of up to the minute information and for the thorough way it covers the field. The effort has been to mention the essentials. Few references to the literature are given, only those considered essential. The attention given to tropical diseases adds much to the value of the book. Exception might be taken to the practice of recommending 2 per cent phenol in water lotions. These if used as wet dressings would approach the danger mark. While not encyclopedic, the book is a valuable addition to the library of the general practitioner as well as to that of the dermatologist. It is well written and well illustrated, and the printer has done an excellent job.
