The last edition of Sir Malcolm Morris's handbook, published in 1907, will be remembered as a small, rather fat green volume of some 700-odd pages with about seventy illustrations, some in color. It was a readable book with a strong imprint of the author's personality. The revision of Sir Malcolm's book by Dore and Franklin has by a process of condensation produced a new and smaller volume, which can be conveniently carried in the coat pocket. Many new dermatoses have been included, the rarer ones in fine print, and the newer concepts of dermatologic conditions have been incorporated in the text. One misses some of the old prints of leprotic and syphilitic British subjects that embellished Sir Malcolm's book, and economy evidently has dictated the omission of the colored plates. Nevertheless the practitioner will find this small volume useful for a rapid review of the subject.
