This book is divided into two parts, of which Part I contains introductory observations on symptomatology, causes of skin diseases, diagnosis, local distribution of skin diseases, treatment and classification; Part II, diseases of the skin proper, inflammations, hemorrhages, hypertrophies, atrophies, new growths, neurosis, diseases of the appendages of the skin, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, hair follicles, nails; parasitic diseases and animal parasitic infections. The work is well illustrated, and carefully written. As in the past, it will continue to be a favorite. We sincerely hope, however, that in the next edition the decimal system of dosage will be used in the prescriptions.
