This book, like its predecessors, is a compact, readable and authqritative work on a subject that is not too well known. The subject is adequately dealt with from the bacteriologic, from the dermatologic and from the medical standpoint. Even surgeons might read the book with profit. It is remarkable how much information concerning molds and yeasts has been packed into this small space. There is a section dealing with the proper components of the various lotions, ointments and paints that may be prescribed in the treatment of these infections.

The book should be popular.
