This monograph covers the subject thoroughly from the standpoint of diagnosis, treatment, and control of epidemics. The illustrations, especially the colored ones, of which there are 34 plates, are excellent. The bibliography is extensive.
That this subject is not without interest in this modern age of air travel is shown by the fact that in the past few years cases of smallpox have been reported in England, Germany, France, and Italy, among other countries. In this hemisphere, in 1957, there were 2,103 cases in Colombia, South America.
The book is highly recommended.
