The text is divided into two parts. The first is concerned with diseases primary in the mouth and the second with the manifestations in the mouth of diseases cf other parts of the body. It is an encyclopedic presentation of stomatology and not strictly a pathology. For example, the parasitology, etiology, pathologic anatomy, symptomatology, prognosis and treatment of actinomycosis occupy ten pages; the symptomatology alone covers four and one-half pages. Such subjects as syphilis and tuberculosis are discussed in great detail, although on the whole most diseases are treated quite briefly. In the section on deficiency diseases some hesitation is manifested in ascribing the etiology of rickets to a deficiency of vitamin D, and Mellanby is placed as an American worker. Eighty-six of the illustrations are excellent drawings and the remainder are poor to fair reproductions of photographs. In the United States this book has some value for reference purposes.
