The third edition of Stokes's classic textbook on syphilis now also bears the names of Beerman and Ingraham, both assistant professors of dermatology and syphilology at the University of Pennsylvania. In the preparation of this encyclopedic work they also had the assistance of eight instructors in the same institution. With this array of talent it is not too much to expect a superb book on the diagnosis and treatment of syphilis, which is up-to-date, readable and accurate. The reader will not be disappointed in his expectations.
