This is the eighth edition of a popular student textbook. As is the case with most German texts on dermatology, venereal diseases are included.

The first edition appeared in 1938. A book must have merit to go through eight editions in 20 years.

The paper, and especially the illustrations, are excellent. Not a single picture was out of focus! The arrangement is in sections. This reviewer was pleased to find an adherence to old and well established therapeutics. One might disagree with certain inclusions, for example, granuloma annulare is described as a form of cutaneous tuberculosis, in which there is a high degree of allergy.

All in all, this is a fine, compact textbook. It is a good addition to the library of one who is able to read German.
