The second edition of this book has appeared, and that fact indicates the appeal that the work has had. It has been entirely reset and brought up to date, and it retains, of course, the virtues of the previous edition. The first of these is the precise, accurate and full attention to details that characterizes all Stokes' books. That the book is addressed primarily to nurses really makes it better for physicians, because it gives in full those minutiae of technic of examination and treatment which the practitioner of medicine is assumed to know but about many of which he is often ignorant. The book contains a vast amount of practical knowledge of diseases of the skin and of patients. It is a valuable work which can be commended to any one interested in dermatology, no matter how much he knows about it.
