The numerous new agents which in recent years have been introduced into the field of external therapeutics lead the authors to write this supplementary monograph to the third edition of their previous work on "Ointments, Powders and Other Externa." Going far beyond the pattern of a simple pharmacopaeia—as the title suggests—and taking into consideration the most recent advances in biochemistry, physiology, and pharmacology, the authors elaborate critically and in detail on vehicles as well as incorporated drugs. Among the patent preparations included, products from the German-language area are, of course, most predominantly mentioned, but also many American patent drugs are discussed.
The booklet contains a wealth of information important and of interest not only to the dermatologist and the pharmacist, but also to members of other disciplines in which topical therapy may be used.
