This admirable work commends itself to the student and practitioner by its clearness of style, its orderly arrangement, and its full and explicit directions respecting treatment.

There is a marked resemblance among modern text-books of dermatology, and while this evidently belongs to the common species, it presents marked individual characteristics. The study of the cutaneous diseases affords an opportunity to follow the minute details of the morbid processes from the commencement of the attack until its termination in resolution or permanent lesion. The author has taken advantage of this opportunity and gives his readers an insight into the histology of many of the diseases considered.

We sincerely hope that he will prosecute his plan of a more voluminous and criginal work, but, however necessary that may be to the specialist, we feel assured that the present publication will fully meet the needs of the general practitioner.
