This edition contains more textbook material than the previous edition. The laboratory procedures have been taken out of the second edition and included in a separate manual prepared by the author. Numerous chemical formulas are given especially in the chapters on biologic stains, disinfection and disinfectants, enzymes of bacteria, the respiration of bacteria, protein decomposition, industrial fermentations, the bacteriology of water and the bacteriology of soil. These excellent chemical illustrations make it unnecessary to consult textbooks of chemistry for a complete understanding of the subjects. The book is not a treatise on medical bacteriology since only three of the twenty-seven chapters are devoted to this field. The fundamentals of bacteriology are well covered and the book can be heartily recommended to students in basic courses in bacteriology and to physicians who wish to bring their knowledge of bacteriology up to date.
