Notes :

Report of Cases of Diseases of the Skin and Syphilis treated at the Clinic and Dispensary of the University of Rome. {Raccolta di Casi Clinici delle malattie della pelle, etc.} By Dr. Casimero Manassei. Roma, 1876. This work consists of a series of 36 photographs, plain and colored, of diseases of the skin, with 76 pages of descriptive letter-press. As a contribution to the general diffusion of knowledge in regard to affections of the skin as observed in various countries, this, as also the report of the Palermo clinic, by Profeta, with its 22 photographs (reviewed in ARCHIVES vol. iv., p. 276), is of real value, but outside of Italy the works will, of course, have but little practical utility for the general physician or specialist. — Extracted from: Archives of Dermatology.
