A Handbook of Diseases of Skin
The design of this handbook is to furnish such a digest of the essentials of practical dermatology, as will be serviceable alike to students and practitioners. The text consists of short general observations on the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the skin, and on the symptomatology, aetiology, diagnosis and classification of cutaneous diseases; followed by a detailed description of each individual affection, giving its clinical history and treatment. To this is added a chart, with diagnostic, therapeutic and dietetic hints, which it is believed will be found extremely useful.
