In the recently published third edition of this book, much of the text is said to have been revised and expanded and fifteen new subjects and their illustrative plates added. The quality of the book, however, remains unchanged. Most of the illustrations are excellent examples of the pathologic processes which they illustrate. The color photography excels the photomicrographs in most medical textbooks made in this country, although overstaining with eosin detracts from the beauty of many of the preparations. If this book were to be used as an atlas of pathologic histology and not as a textbook of pathology, it could be useful to American students in medical schools where classes are large, instructors are few and material limited in quantity or quality. Although this book is not intended to replace standard textbooks, its conciseness and attractiveness seem to offer the time-harried student a way out of his perennial dilemma.
