The second volume of Kyrle's Histobiology of the Skin sustains the excellent impression left by the first volume. The colored illustrations made from original histologic preparations are models of clarity and detail. Included in this volume are the acute and chronic inflammatory disorders of the skin and the so-called specific granulomas. The chapters on the various forms of tuberculosis of the skin, on syphilis, on leprosy and on lymphogranulomatosis are of especial interest. Kyrle's original plan to include the tumors of the skin in this volume was prevented by illness, and it was his intention to cover this subject in a third volume. The untimely death of the author occurred in March, 1926, and the present two volumes will remain as a lasting monument to the zeal and industry of this talented dermatologist.
