This is a well-written description of those wretched troublemakers, poison ivy and poison sumach. While the book is not large, it contains the essentials—all that it is necessary for one to know about the subject. The descriptions of the plants are clear and easily understood; these with the illustrations make it easy to recognize the plants at any season of the year. The suggestions for treatment are sensible. The book, though written for the layman, will be found of practical interest to the physician.
