This edition is characterized by numerous and excellent illustrations, an index of preliminary diagnoses grouped according to the essential lesions, suggestions for treatment in crystallized form which are proved and practical, and short, concrete, classic descriptions of the various diseases, all of which make for a vivid and noteworthy contribution to the General Practice Series. The book has been written for the general practitioner and the medical student, and the absence of numerous references and the inclusion of concrete suggestions for treatment should insure its popularity. Particularly worthy of favorable comment is the author's avoidance of lengthy discussions of the treatment of those dermatoses for which dermatologists have little to offer. The book is highly recommended to the medical student and the general practitioner, for whom it was written. Many dermatologists would do well to have it at hand for ready reference.
