This volume continues the articles on infectious diseases. The contributors are Prof. Dittmar Finkler, M.D., of Bonn, who has contributed nearly one-half of the volume, 249 pages on influenza; Eduardo Licéaga, on typhus fever, 72 pages; Dr. S. Kissato Katsagawa, on Asiatic plague; Dr. Frank S. Billings, on glanders and anthrax; Ismar Boas, on foot and mouth disease; M. L. Ponfick, on actinomycosis; N. J. Keirle, on rabies; J. McFadden Gaston and J. McFadden Gaston, Jr., on pyemia and septicemia.
