This is a monumental work. Originally presented by Professors Kolle and Hetsch with the assistance of Professor Schlossberger, it now appears under the editorship of Professor Hetsch, Professor Kolle having died some time ago. The present edition covers nearly every phase of bacteriology, virus diseases and the more important tropical diseases. Each disease is discussed under a separate chapter and the important bacteriologic technical details are given, also the important symptomatology, and a short pathologic discussion of the disease. There are excellent colored plates of smear and culture preparations and numerous black and white reproductions. At the end of each chapter there is a bibliography. Important references to the American literature has been omitted. In the section on virus diseases there is no mention of the work done by Dr. Rivers of the Rockefeller Institute in this country. The important work on streptococci by Dr. Lancefield is not presented. This book can be highly recommended to the
