This book has an advantage for the general reader over most works on diseases of the skin, in that the new dermatological technical words and phrases are dispensed with as much as possible. The consideration of the different diseases of the skin is preceded by some general considerations on anatomy, physiology, symptomatology, diagnosis, pathology, etiology, treatment, and prognosis. The treatment recommended for different diseases is such as almost any practitioner may carry out. Half a hundred pages of formulary, and a good index, complete the book.
