This is a masterful 1,300 page text written by the former Assistant Consultant of St. Louis Hospital, Paris. It emphasizes differential diagnosis and instruction in the fundamental clinical and histologic characteristics of common skin diseases. The diversification and yet succinct completeness are remarkable. There are 320 illustrations. Among these are many original schemata of great practical interest, for which the author in previous books has attained a reputation. The section called "Alphabet dermatologique'' deserves special commendation because it illustrates by these excellent diagrams and by splendid photographs both the pathologic and the clinical features of each of the common skin lesions and diseases. The outline of treatment is up-to-date and includes the use of the sulfonamides, penicillin, calciferol and BAL (2,3-dimercaptopropanol). This book is certainly one of the best texts on dermatology in any language and is highly recommended both to dermatologists and to general medical practitioners.
