Lever's many contributions to histogenesis and classification of cutaneous tumors and Hashimoto's extensive electron microscopic studies of normal adnexa and their neoplasms are combined in the discussion of 38 skin appendage tumors. Twelve of these are illustrated by clinical photographs, 31 by photomicrographs, and 17 by 86 electron micrographs, the latter reflecting the research interests of the authors in individual tumors. In addition, more than 40 electron micrographs of normal tissues assist the reader in orienting himself in the still relatively unfamiliar field of ultrastructure. The text is concise and occupies less than one third of the volume. Fairly extensive bibliographic references, mainly to publications of the last 15 years, a good index, and four well-organized tables on enzyme patterns and ultrastructural features of eccrine and apocrine glands, classification of benign appendage tumors, and morphology and dimensions of fibrous elements of the skin add to the value of the book.
