The basis of this book is the previous work of the senior author, "Notes on the Relation of Insects to Disease," published in 1912. Naturally it depends for its completeness on a survey of a large amount of periodical literature lately published on this subject. The authors evidently have scanned this literature thoroughly, and they append a large alphabetical bibliography to the book which is brought up to date. The various insects which bear even a remote relation to human pathology are listed, classified, described and most of them illustrated. Hints are given on methods of treating the lesions and eliminating the pests, and suggestions regarding easily accessible literature give more information on these points.
