The author is an anatomist and has produced a very valuable short treatise on not only microscopic techniques but has also included a thorough exposition of the physics of the various types of microscopes and the instruments necessary for producing acceptable, usable, and satisfactory stained sections.

There is a good chapter on the properties of the various dyes and their selective use.

There was no mention of the PAS stain, which is prominent in American dermatopathologic literature, but the author is not a dermatologist.

At the end of the book, on a different colored paper (yellow), there is a section containing concise methods for many of the common and some uncommon stains.

The book is of particular value to those who direct the preparation of microscopic sections and furnishes in concise form a manual for ready reference.
