This small volume has been written by the author as a summary of the evidence indicating, first, that syphilis was present in Europe long before Columbus and hence did not arise in America, and, second, that syphilis and yaws are different manifestations of the same disease. The results of prolonged historical research are evident on every page and the reader will be delighted by many picturesque quotations. The author's interest in his subject overflows into many allied fields so that topics such as the history of slavery are dealt with under sub-headings; and these diversions are almost always very interesting.
