This is an atlas with nineteen plates and sixty figures in black and white, six roentgenograms of bones, twenty-eight illustrating the gross disease and the remainder the histologic changes due to congenital syphilis. It is accompanied with a good review from the literature of this subject and represents the author's desire to make the results of his work more accessible. In 1912 his monograph was published in Danish and from that this atlas is an excerpt. His study was of the bodies of 223 syphilitic fetuses or infants, none of the latter more than 10 days old. There are no illustrations of the microscopic disease in the spleen or central nervous system. The lesions are familiar, and the illustrations superb. There is also a table of the frequency with which the different parts of the body were involved.
