In his introduction to this book, A. Midana, Professor of Dermatology at the University of Turin, with justifiable righteousness, chides American scientists for ignoring completely the work of Italian scholars. It is understandable that the Italian investigators in dermatology should ask for recognition for their many contributions. Much aimless reduplication of work might have been avoided if we had availed ourselves of their vast literature. Ormea has now written a unique book which at once commands attention, since no one before him has attempted to gather in one volume so much information on cutaneous innervation. Those interested in skin and in the peripheral nervous system cannot now afford to overlook the contributions of the Italians, and particularly those of Ormea.
Even a brief perusal of the 815 pages and 502 figures makes one realize at once that this book is a work of love; Ormea has performed a herculean task
