While rather elementary, this nevertheless fills an oft felt need. It deals with problems of water supply, sewage disposal, mosquito control, milk sanitation, shell-fish sanitation, camps, parks, swimming pools and nuisances in such a way as to be of value both for instruction in the fundamentals of these branches of sanitation and also as a reference book for inspectors and other sanitarians. One of the advantages of this book is the wealth of illustrations showing types of construction recommended and also those frequently found which should be improved. It might be improved by an additional chapter on the administration of municipal health measures.
