DIET AND HYGIENE IN DISEASES OF THE SKIN. By L. Duncan Bulkley, A.M., M.D. Physician to the New York Skin and Cancer Hospital; Consulting Physician to the New York Hospital; Consulting Dermatologist to Randall’s Island Hospital, to the Hospital for Ruptured and Crippled, and to the Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital, Etc. New York. Paul B. Hoeber. $2.00 net.

This little book (194 pages) is a crystallization of the well-known theories that Dr. Bulkley has promulgated for so many years.

The volume is divided into six lectures, each dealing with some skin disease that is more or less influenced by errors in diet or hygiene.

The appendix is devoted to the consideration of special diets, etc. The work will be of undoubted value to any one who wishes to carry out a certain line of diet in the treatment of those refractory skin diseases that are especially dealt with in the book.

The binding, presswork and general make-up of the work is excellent.
