This is a first edition of a German monograph on the preparation of selected culture media most frequently used in the medical bacteriologic laboratory.

The book is divided into two parts, the first of which contains valuable data on basic principles involved in preparing media. The second part of the book gives specific information for the preparation of culture media for the growth of various pathogenic organisms. Although emphasis is given to media published in the German literature, formulae of American and foreign origin are mentioned. The presentation is adequate and concise, the print is clear, and the book is arranged in alphabetical index form.
