This monograph, without claiming originality, deals in a concise and readable form with the common animal parasites of man and the diseases caused by them. The format is excellent, and the many splendid illustrations are an outstanding feature. The American reader, educated by the work of the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association, is shocked at the emphasis placed on proprietary pharmaceuticals, such as filmaron, gelodurat, helminal, butolan, oxylax, oxymors, oxural and wurmserol. Owing to absence of an index, the book is difficult to use for reference.
