This is virtually a condensed form of the eighth edition of Sutton's "Diseases of the Skin." Intended primarily for students, it should well serve that purpose. It is rich in good illustrations, is well indexed, and is concise and clear. The format is excellent; to each of the conditions more rarely encountered, the authors devote a short paragraph. The disorders of common occurrence are more fully and adequately considered. The treatment recommended is rational and the prescriptions are simple and of a kind that can be readily dispensed. The first part of the book is devoted to the principles of dermatology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, etiology and treatment, and includes also a topographic classification which should be of service to the student. Newer subjects, such as allergy and bacteriophage therapy, are included. The book is a sound, conservative work that should serve as a useful introduction to dermatology.
