Our notice of the first edition of this work will be found in Vol. xxvi, page 688, April 4, 1896, and we regret to see that the errors in history which were pointed out in our notice have still been continued in the present edition, no correction having been made. In other respects, the volume sustains the favorable opinion we gave of it on its first appearance. In this edition new chapters have been added, dealing with the bacteriology of whooping-cough, mumps, yellow fever, hog cholera-swine plague, describing bacillus aërogenes capsulatus and proteus vulgaris, and pointing out the methods of determining the value of antiseptics and germicides, and of determining the thermal death-point. This makes a work fully abreast of the times, and one of the most useful of recent text-books on bacteriology, so far as its practical applications are concerned.
