It is a pleasure to call attention to the new edition of Prosser White's "Occupational Affections of the Skin," in which, by the way, he has introduced most of us to a new word in his title, "Dermatergoses or Occupational Affections of the Skin." The evidence of the success of the book and the importance of its subject are shown by the appearance of this third edition and the increase in size of the successive editions. The first edition has 165 pages, the second edition 300 pages and this edition 734 pages. While this new edition is a complete revision and contains an immense amount of new material, the character of the work is unchanged. This book is one of the most valuable works in the English dermatologic literature, and its popular success is altogether justified. It is hoped that Dr. White may long continue to create new editions of
The Dermatergoses or Occupational Affections of the Skin. Arch Derm Syphilol. 1929;19(5):858–859. doi:10.1001/archderm.1929.02380230148018
