In this volume thirteen eminent dermatologists collaborate to present a complete textbook of dermatology and syphilology. The opening chapter is a general discussion of common conditions affecting the skin, as well as general methods of diagnosis and treatment. Then follow infections of the skin, various forms of dermatitis, tumors, toxic dermatoses, other dermatoses, abnormalities, diseases of the nails and hair and of the lips and mucous membranes, pigmentary disturbances, endocrine manifestations, neuroses and syphilis. The section on syphilis, by Dr. Joseph Earle Moore, is essentially a condensation of the more extensive volume on the subject made available independently. There are hundreds of pictures such as are necessary in any textbook of dermatology, and a good index to complete the volume. Each of the chapters is supplemented by a brief bibliography. The book is a commendable volume and fits well into the system of which it is a part.
