The first edition of Professor Shoemaker's book appeared in 1888, and the second one in 1892; many changes have occurred in the pathology and etiology of the treatment of diseases of the skin, a number of new preparations have been introduced and the most important of them that have been thoroughly tested are noticed in the work. A short account has been given of mycosis fungoides and actinomycosis, neither of which diseases appeared in the former editions. The conclusions reached by the latest investigators in symptomatology, diagnosis and etiology treatment have been added to the volume.

The illustrations are excellent and in general we must say this edition fully merits the support and consideration given its predecessors.
