This book is a beautifully compiled atlas of histopathology of the skin, composed of 376 photomicrographs in color. They are the best colored reproductions using the Finley process that the reviewer has seen and the colors, even with special stains, are faithfully and accurately reproduced. The format of the book, including the arrangement of the text and legends, leaves nothing to be desired.
The authors state in the preface that they have attempted to portray in pictorial form the microscopic changes seen in the commoner diseases of the skin and, therefore, that the text matter has been severely limited to a brief explanation of the process illustrated. They have followed a clinical classification, grouping diseases according to the primary cutaneous change. This leads to a classification somewhat different from that seen in most textbooks on dermatology or in those on dermatohistopathology. The terminology employed is also different in many places
