This small book on cutaneous diseases has been kept to its present size largely by the fact that no account of the pathology of the various diseases discussed is given. For a book on cutaneous diseases this omission is probably permissible.
The book is well illustrated but has no colored cuts, and in view of the present state of color photography in publication this is a serious defect for any book on cutaneous diseases.
The book is short, compact and well written, and the author discusses treatment fairly well. Numerous prescriptions are given. On the whole, the book should prove useful to the general practitioner and to the pediatrician.
