An astonishing amount of valuable information for the dermatologist is contained in this impressive book of reference. Of 720 pages dealing with occupational tumors of all organs and tissues, 280 pages, or nearly 40 per cent, are devoted to tumors of the skin. The author has carefully analyzed evidence obtained from innumerable sources and has attempted to "correlate and evaluate the various observations made, and theoretical conceptions advanced so as to form a well balanced and when possible, coherent picture of the subject under discussion."
