This beautiful volume is intended, according to the authors, “for the use of medical men engaged in a course of study, such as is provided in the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, preparatory to, or during leave of absence from, their practice in the Tropics.” Therefore, it is not intended as a comprehensive zoological treatise, and the reader will note immediately that this is true, for the authors begin their consideration of the protozoa, after short chapters upon general structure and classification, with a description of the malarial parasites of man, instead of with the amoebae, as in most works upon protozoology. The intention of the authors must be borne in mind in judging of the value of this work, and it may be stated at once that no more valuable monograph upon protozoology has appeared for the class of medical men referred to, than is this of Thomson and Robertson.
