The present volume is the third edition of Dr. Tilbury Fox's well-known little Epitome of Skin Diseases. It has been edited since his death by his brother, T. Colcott Fox. The work has been amended and many parts rewritten. The first 43 pages are devoted to the consideration of general topics, as the " Elementary Lesions, " Classifications," "Causes of Skin Diseases," "Diagnosis," and " General Principles of Treatment." The remainder is devoted to brief descriptions of the skin diseases. These descriptions are alphabetically arranged. The book is what it purports to be, an epitome, and is good of its kind.
