Abstract New editions of most "compact" books, like new models of most compact cars, are getting bigger and more elegant. This sixth edition of Andrews' text, completely rewritten by Domonkos, is no exception. It's gone up from 658 to 968 enlarged and readable two-column pages, with room for twice as many words as the fourth edition had. It has twice as many pictures-1,197, of which 900 have not appeared in any previous edition. It deals with 250 more diseases than the fifth edition did, about 1,400 in all. The sections on dermatoses due to physical factors, dermal tumors, and animal parasites have been enlarged and improved. The new chapter on leprosy (though it is, unhappily, titled "Hanseniasis") is excellent, except for using the term "lepra reaction" to include tuberculoid reactions as well, and incorrectly defining the morphologic index as the number of uniformly staining bacilli per "unit of leprous tissue" instead
