Reviews

From the reviews:

“The format of Pantheon of Dermatology is pleasing in the extreme. … Open this book to any page and you will find something interesting. … The Pantheon is more than a history and more than a collection of biographies––it is a monument to the history of dermatology. There is absolutely no question that it is an essential item for all dermatology department libraries. For that matter, it would be a joy to have a copy of your own.” (Jeffrey D. Bernhard, Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, December, 2013)

“This tome is magnificent to view, and it will provide much education and reflection for even the most erudite readers. … I would recommend this wonderful book to all who love dermatology and who want to know more about those who came before us. I would also urge every residency library to make this jewel of a textbook available so that younger students of dermatology can appreciate the splendid history of those who preceded them.” (Jane M. Grant-Kels, Clinics in Dermatology, Vol. 31, 2013)

“This work belongs on the bookshelf of every dermatologist worldwide. It would make a superior graduation gift for each dermatology resident and every medical student planning a career in dermatology. … with color illustrations of original works and moulages, often from private collections, it advances the knowledge of many individual skin diseases. This splendid book is pivotal in enhancing appreciation of the rich tradition of dermatology.” (Robert A. Schwartz, International Journal of Dermatology, 2013)
