This book is really not a treatise on the fundamentals of dermatology but a synopsis of dermatology, and is a good example of this sort of manual. It gives accurately, but in bare outline, the pictures of cutaneous diseases, and its usefulness, like all such manuals, must be chiefly in diagnosis. One cannot get an intelligent picture of any cutaneous disease from so brief a description, and such a book must be supplemented by a larger work to which the puzzled reader may refer after he thinks he has located the disease in which he is at the moment interested. Schalek has done his job well, but the question must be raised as to the value of such brief synopses, except perhaps in cramming for an examination.
