This is a short, concise exposition of dermatology written primarily for the student. The illustrations are carefully selected and many of them are in colors. The drawings illustrating the microscopic pathology of the more important diseases have been well executed by the author himself. The text represents the clinical conception and therapeutic methods in vogue in the present-day Edinburgh school of dermatology. No attempt has been made to include syphilis, the excuse being given that this subject is adequately taken up in textbooks on venereal diseases. It is hoped that future editions will include this important subject. Medical students and practitioners will find this volume useful for a rapid review of dermatology.
