The Treatment of Skin Diseases. Therapie der Hautkrankheiten. By L. LEISTIKOW, M.D., with a preface by P.G. UNNA. Octavo, xv, pp. 408. Leopold Voss: Hamburg and Leipzig, 1897.

The scientific researches and the practical work done in the Dermatological School in Hamburg have contributed much to the progress of modern dermatology. From that school came forth des idées mères, which afterward were developed and fostered by the researches of other investigators. For a period of years the bricks and mortar of skin pathology have been gathered there by the pupils of the school, till they were disposed of by the master mind in a monumental work, entitled "The Histopathology of the Skin." The present book of Leistikow is a natural consequence of Unna's labors.
