This thin volume is distinguished by its magnificent illustrations (99 in color, 88 black and white)—a joy for one with appreciation of excellence in medical illustration. As the title indicates, the volume concisely surveys the field of dermatology. It does not serve as a reference work for the physician with a background in dermatology. A number of skin diseases of childhood are illustrated though the pediatrician will be disappointed that the coverage is not complete. The quality of the illustrations alone, however, justifies ownership of the book.
