Dr. Bulkley, in the second edition of his valuable treatise, has made no radical changes in form or contents. The book still remains, as the author expresses it, " a personal one," representing his own experience, with data of many hundreds of cases from private practice. It covers, nevertheless, all the ground of a complete treatise on eczema thoroughly and systematically, and embodies avowedly the views of prominent dermatologists as well as those of the writer.

Statistics are furnished of 3,000 cases. Separate chapters are devoted to the nosology of eczema, to its pathological anatomy, to its diagnosis, to its treatment, and to its special localities.

A copious general index and a complete formulary are appended, making the treatise one of much practical utility to the practitioner. It will be received with favor by the profession, and serve a useful purpose in supplying a thorough and tangible summary of modern investigations
