The chapters in this volume, presented as papers at the Brown University Symposium in 1960 on "The Biology of the Skin—The Blood Vessels and Circulation of Blood in the Skin," have been edited and put together in a most informative monograph.
An account is given of the useful ways in which the cutaneous circulation may be studied: perfusion of opaque substances is a standard technique, X-ray projection microscopy of the vessels produces beautiful studies, electron microscopy shows the structure of the vessel wall, and histochemical methods demonstrate the distribution of alkaline phosphatase. Graham Weddell contributes recent work on the innervation
