The fasciculus under notice is part third of this useful work. The design of the authors, Publisher and Translater is to make the models in this famous museum the common property of the profession. The work proceeds slowly, but with care and faithful closeness to the originals. We have in this number reproductions in photo-lithochrome of the models showing Tertiary Syphilitic Ulceration of the Tongue; Dermatitis Herpetiformis in Concentric circles; Syphilitic Gummta of the Thigh; Disseminated Epithelioma of the Face, sebaceous in type at the outset, with various intermediate types.

The explanatory text is quite remarkable for conciseness, the lessons are mainly told by the pictures themselves, and the reader is not wearied by tedious discussions, but enough is said for full understanding of the models.
