The first edition was published in 1927 and contained 525 pages and eighty-seven illustrations; a second edition appeared in 1933 and contained 552 pages and ninety-three illustrations. The author states in his preface that the need for a third edition at this time is due to the place the work has found in the libraries and laboratories of those interested in the bacteriology of diseases of the lower animals and especially to its adoption by numerous colleges and universities as a textbook for use in the teaching of veterinary bacteriology. Much new material is introduced in the various sections, and the chapters and subject material have the same orderly and systematic arrangement as in previous editions. The classification of bacteria as developed by Bergey has been continued. Chapters on protozoa and hematology are again included. Kelser's Manual of Veterinary Bacteriology is the foremost work in the field of veterinary bacteriology
