A symposium on the industrial dermatoses was conducted at the Cité Hospitalière de Lille, June 10 and 11, 1955, in a joint meeting of the Société Française de Dermatologie et de Syphiligraphie and the Sociétés de Médecine du Travail de France. In this volume appear the 35 papers presented during the symposium, together with discussions of some of the papers. The geographical distribution of the writers was extensive; Paris, Palermo, Lyon, Barcelona, Marseille, Lille, Turin, Edinburgh, Nancy, Val-de-Grace, Lens, and Strasbourg.
This volume of 262 pages is paper bound, and, as usual with Masson & Cie, printed on excellent stock. The only typographical errors found were those of English names and places. Beginning is an introduction of 12 pages by the Secretary General of the Symposium, Prof. Claude Huriez of Lille, who likewise closes with an analysis of the proceedings.
The papers are, without exception, excellent, and the bibliography comprehensive
