This book is really a revision of the well-known Manual by the same author, published in 1892. The author says in the preface: "For the benefit of students of medicine and others who do not care especially for the detailed descriptions of non-pathogenic bacteria and the extensive bibliography contained in the Manual, this Text-Book of Bacteriology is now published. It comprises that portion of the Manual above referred to as printed in large type, revised to include all important additions to our knowledge of the pathogenic bacteria since the original date of publication." This is an honest revision and the reader will have cause to complain of few if any omissions. The same modesty has characterized the author's statements in this work in all matters concerning his own discoveries as in the Manual. With regard to the phagocytic action of the white corpuscles, he thus mentions his own clear priority
