This exceedingly meritorious undertaking to republish medical classics not simply because of their historical value but because of their interest to contemporary physicians should be encouraged. This number is of particular interest to dermatologists because it is devoted to Sir James Paget and because it contains his original paper on disease of the nipple and his papers on osteitis deformans.

Dermatologists who have not read it should read Paget's description of his disease of the nipple in order to see how completely a disease can be described from a study of its clinical manifestations alone. Indeed, Paget's style makes the whole volume worthy of reading. His descriptions can be studied with benefit.

This new periodical, each volume of which will consist of ten numbers, will reproduce many classic descriptions of diseases. It is the sort of publication which every physician needs in his library.
