The original publication of this book occurred in 1897. Sir Robert Muir has withdrawn from participation in this revision so that the original authorship has now come to an end. This edition has been added to especially in the chapters on filtrable viruses. The nomenclature is out of date and is not in keeping with present accepted views. The physiologic and immunologic portions are rather superficially handled. There are numerous omissions of important work during the past five or six years in many of the fields. The plan of putting the colored plates in the front and all the bibliography in the back of the book is an awkward arrangement. The book leaves the impression of being superficial and skimming over a large amount of material without a serious consideration of any one subject.
