This translation of Scheube's work is a valuable accession to the medical literature of the English language. It has had but one predecessor on the subject, and that is the comparatively small work by Manson. This is decidedly the more valuable work. Of course, the text is a little behind the times, but that has, to a certain extent, been made up by the addenda to the chapters on some subjects and in which a brief summary of the chief recent advances in our knowledge of malaria and yellow fever is given. A specially valuable feature of the work is its bibliographies, which brings the literature up to within a comparatively few years. It would have been better had the book been revised and annotated instead of merely translated, and we hope that in future editions this will be done. With a thoroughly detailed editing we know of no work
