This little book having passed to its second edition, has its success assured in advance. Bacteriology has made such rapid changes in the last year that a work on the subject needs frequent revision to keep in touch with the new discoveries. The author says: "In this second edition the results of last year's earnest work have been embodied.... The separation from the blood of antitoxines, and their application to the cure of disease will probably revolutionize our present method of treatment, and add some peculiar agents to our materia medica. The question of immunity is still unanswered, though the phagocytic theory of Metschnikoff and the Alexines of Buchner are bringing us to the solution. Upon these lines the greatest efforts are at present being made."
