This is a successful textbook on immunology. The first edition appeared in 1935, the second in 1941, and the third has now been recently printed. All three have followed the same general pattern but have grown in size to keep up with developments in knowledge.
The ARCHIVES reviewed the first edition (58:956 [Nov.] 1936), commenting favorably on the arrangement of the text, the bibliography that appeared at the end of each chapter, and the excellent index. The same compliments can be paid the third edition. Indeed, the words that concluded the review of the first edition still hold true in regard to the third. Again it can be said that "the book belongs to that attractive species which at once feels at home and is a useful member of the family in any library, on any reference shelf or in any laboratory."
