This little book gives a summary of the present knowledge of bacteriophages as viewed by the French followers of d'Hérelle. Consequently, bacteriophage is presented as a living agent or principle, a "virus of microbes," the discovery of which has opened the doors to new fields in science and new methods of treatment, the latter certainly being still in the earliest part of the experimental stage. The book is interesting as an introduction to the work on bacteriophage, but it cannot be accepted as containing any final solutions of the fundamental questions of the nature and significance of the bacteriophagic phenomenon.
