In this analytical history of treponematosis the author furnishes a convincing explanation of the development of syphilis. His analysis of the debated relationship of the discovery of America by Columbus and the spread of syphilis in Europe is of great interest. The discussion of the autogenic and clinical relationship between yaws and syphilis is expertly handled. Classification, clinical features, pathology and epidemiology of diseases caused by the treponemas are presented in scholarly fashion.
