This atlas is the product of cooperation between dermatologist, pathologist and experts in technic. The microscopic structures of the more frequent skin diseases are portrayed in colors with only short explanations and without any discussion of the literature. The illustrations are uniformly of a high grade of work-manship and are provided with good descriptive legends. The stain and the magnification are given in each case. Photographs are reproduced of fleas and other insects of special interest to the dermatologist. Presumably on account of their rarity in Scotland, blastomycosis and other fungous infections of the skin are not illustrated. The atlas will be an excellent guide in the study of the histopathology of the skin.
