This book of Sulzberger's is excellent. A close and enthusiastic student of allergy, a persistent investigator in the field, he has put on paper in lecture form a well thought-out presentation of the story of allergy, using dermatologic phraseology and clinicodermatologic concepts to bring allergy and its implications to the doorstep of the dermatologist. In sixteen chapters (lectures), beginning with "On Definitions and Classifications" and closing with "On the Future of Allergy," is given a complete, though selected, picture of the allergist at work in the elaboration of an understanding of clinical dermatology. Tables and appendixes are effectively employed to assist in the capitulation and understanding of the text, which is further augmented by thirty-nine black and white illustrations and thirteen colored plates.

This unqualified encomium on the substance of this book cannot be carried over to its form. The reviewer wishes there were less italics and less small print
