The author of this book undertook the arrangement of all described species of bacteria in order to determine whether certain forms isolated by him from the study of the bacterial flora of cultivated soils were new forms. The labor was so great that it was thought best to embody the results in book form so that other workers might have the advantage of the results. The book serves principally the purpose of identification. The classification adopted is not claimed to be perfect, but the best one that could be made under the circumstances. From glancing at the index and the body of the work it is believed that Chester's work will prove to be a useful one in determining the identification of unknown bacteria. By its aid the pupil, as well as the advanced worker, will be able readily to determine the identity of bacterial cultures. The work will, therefore,
