This volume is an exhaustive treatise on the subject of congenital syphilis, not only from the standpoint of the actual pathology but also from the standpoint of the possible relation of syphilis to various other diseases. One who is familiar with the French literature soon gains the impression that most French writers attribute to syphilis a much wider complicity as an etiologic factor in various diseases than do American writers. This impression is strengthened when perusing this book. It is noticeable that the references in the text are nearly all to French publications. Almost no reference is made to recent American work along this line. On the whole, the book is good, and contains much that is valuable.
