This compact little book contains a fund of practical information for the nursing care of patients with diseases of the skin. Only a few of the more common diseases are considered, but emphasis is placed on the principles of treatment which can be applied as well to the diseases which were omitted. Bandaging, bathing, the application of salves, lotions and the like are all fully considered and illustrated with photographs. In places, the writing could have been more simple.
