Strictly speaking, this is not a new edition. It is a reprint. The number of pages in the book is exactly the same, and the various topics appear on the same pages in the second as in the third edition. This edition is printed on heavy enamel stock, and accordingly the book is considerably thicker than the preceding one.

As its title indicates, the subject of pathology is discussed in all of its aspects: histologic technic, embryology, anatomy, congenital anomalies, tissue changes in disease, animal parasites, bacteriology and mycology.

The illustrations are the features that are the most needed in dermatology, and it is regrettable that the text concerning the histopathology is not more ample, but the extended scope of the book has doubtless prevented this. The book continues to be the most useful one of its kind in dermatology.
