"Morrow, one of America's premier nineteenth-century dermatologists, was born in Kentucky and received his medical degree in 1874 from University Medical College in New York. This atlas covering the entire range of dermatological and venereal diseases is his most famous work. The colored plates, selected from the works of a number of prominent artists, effectively supplement the clearly-written text.
