The first edition of this book appeared in 1933. The reviews which it received are worth mentioning for they are so remarkably uncomplaining. The Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology (30:330 [Aug.] 1934) called the book a great one and a real contribution to the knowledge of syphilis. The Journal of the American Medical Association (102:1328 [April 21] 1934) termed it a classic and prophesied many future editions. The Archives (53:632 [April] 1934), so likely to be conservative and uneffusive, fairly outdid itself: "From time to time books appear which start out as landmarks in a subject so far as they rid themselves of the deadwood of tradition and by a consideration of actual facts formulate definitely a new point of view. Such a result, in our opinion, has been achieved by Moore in his discussion of the modern treatment of syphilis."
The second edition is 139 pages
