This is an unusual type of book. It is long and narrow and contains relatively few pages; however, the main part of the book is a series of colored slides of which about half are illustrations of gross specimens and half are photomicrographs. The two Kodachrome slides that were sent with the review copy are beautiful, clear, and instructive. The book is divided into seven chapters that concern diseases of the cervix, of the endometrium, of the myometrium, and of the fallopian tubes, and benign tumors, primary malignant tumors, and secondary malignant lesions of the ovary. The text explains the gross and microscopic appearance of practically all the pathological lesions observed in gynecology. The colored slides illustrate every pathological entity described in the text. The cost of the book is high, but, as is well known, Kodachrome slides are expensive. Such an atlas will prove invaluable in hospitals for interns
