This is intended as a handy reference work for the biologist who wishes to recall the exact formula of a reagent or the precise steps of a procedure, the principles of which are familiar. The general and special technics for the determination of bacteria are given, together with the composition of reagents, the exact directions for preparing mediums, the use of stains, the inoculation of animals, the examination of blood and cerebrospinal fluid, the performing of serologic tests, and the preparation and titration of vaccines and serums. The index is well prepared, so that the biologist who knows little of French may nevertheless find the reaction, preparation or method for which he is searching. The manual is particularly useful to one searching for the description of materials and methods that are more often referred to in the French and other European literature than in American biologic journals.
