This monograph is an attempt to assemble the many divergent techniques related to the field of blood grouping and present them in a manner which physicians and technicians interested in this subject may understand. The multitude of blood groups are given in the chronology of their discovery, and subsequent sections of the monograph deal individually with each blood group system and the techniques applicable to this system. Where more than one method is acceptable, the author has attempted to choose and justify his choice.
