This is a useful monograph. It is practical, short and plainly written. There is a liberal amount of illustrations in black and white, and there is a full index. Its contents are chapters on the anatomy and pathology of the nails, disorders peculiar to the nails, nail dystrophies, manifestations in the nails of dermatoses and of systemic diseases, and congenital disorders of the nails. In addition there is a list of occupations in which diseases of the nails are common and one of ungual symptoms due to poisons. The author's purpose was to supply in English the widely scattered facts contained in the literature, together with his own observations, in a condensed yet comprehensive manner. The task has been accomplished well. It is an excellent little book to have at hand for reference.
