Part 1 of volume 12 is a book of nearly 900 pages and is devoted chiefly to tropical diseases of the skin. It has chapters on frambesia; gundu; tropical phagedena; leishmaniasis; the exanthems and other pictures of the skin in tropical diseases; verruca peruviana; dermatomycosis in the tropics; tropical blastomycosis; animal parasites of the skin in tropical countries, and the skin and helminths. The work also considers the common diseases of the skin in the colored races, and juxta-articular nodes and rat-bite fever, which are sandwiched in between other subjects without any apparent logical association. Juxta-articular nodes are considered in two articles in two different parts of the book. The subjects are not considered as fully as is usual in this encyclopedia, and the discussions are of unequal value, but the whole is a valuable summary of tropical dermatoses.

Parts 2 and 3 are a monumental work on cutaneous tumors
