In this compact volume of over 1000 pages an amazing amount of detailed material is covered. Confining himself to diagnosis, the author goes through the body by regions, for example, head, scalp, face, parotid gland, lips, mouth, jaws, teeth, and gums. Under each heading many items are discussed. In addition, under the heading of "the body as a whole" are taken up a variety of topics such as the constitution, infectious diseases, the allergic states, trauma, physical and chemical agents, etc. The book can not fail to be of use for quick reference. Here are excellent bibliographies and there is an index.
