This volume maintains the high standard set by volume 1, which was reviewed in these pages. As in all works of collaboration, the various chapters are uneven; some are short to the point of being inadequate, whereas others are possibly longer than the subject matter warrants. There is also the overlapping which seems inevitable in such works.

The first chapter in parts 1 to 4 is an excellent introduction to and general consideration of the question of occupational dermatitis by Moriz Oppenheim. Appended is an exhaustive bibliography of fourteen pages, in which there are a number of American references, surprisingly large for a German work. Following are chapters on the effect of soap, water, the alkalis, the strong acids, the lacquers and the metals. There are reproductions of many excellent photographs together with four pages of colored plates of moulage preparations inserted for those who care for them.
