This atlas is replete with photographs in color and brief descriptions of what may be seen in the illustrations. It is not as complete as some texts because it does not provide details of diagnosis, etiology, and treatment. It does offer, however, some remarkably outstanding colored photographs that will be of great help to the practitioner and student, particularly if he does not see some of the conditions very frequently. The descriptions of the disease and treatment are offered in capsule form, but this in no way detracts from the usefulness of the volume. It is a worthwhile addition to any library and should be as useful to the general practitioner, the student, or the pediatrician as to the dermatologist. The book is well bound, the paper is of good quality, and the type is pleasing to the eye.
