The contributors to this volume, with perhaps two exceptions, are well-known writers on dermatology, and several have text-books of their own. Surely, the duty of fairly depicting the state of knowledge on this subject could not have been intrusted to abler hands.

Charles W. Allen, M.D., New York; John T. Bowen, M.D., Boston; L. Brocq, M.D., Paris; L. Duncan Bulkley, M.D., New York; H. Radcliffe Crocker, M.D., London; James Nevins Hyde, M.D., Chicago; Moriz Kaposi, M.D., Vienna; H. Leloir, M.D., Lille; D. W. Montgomery, M.D., San Francisco; Arthur Van Harlingen, M.D., Philadelphia, and H. White-house, of New York, are the contributors. The text is brought up to date, the illustrations are excellent, and the publisher's part of the book is all that could be desired. This volume is a worthy companion to the other excellent ones of the series.
