This atlas from Switzerland, printed in German, like all others, is designed to help the busy practitioner recognize more readily the cutaneous diseases encountered in his practice. All of the common cutaneous infections, affections, and tumors are considered. The book contains 158 illustrations, most of them excellent, clear photographs in natural color and of good size; brief pertinent comments regarding them; the indicated therapy for each condition; a brief account of the anatomy of the skin and of essential pathologic lesions; a page of prescription formulas; bibliographic references and a full index. It differs from other pictorial books of its kind in its more convenient size; on that score alone, it merits recommendation.
