This is the first of the projected nine volumes of the system of bacteriology being published by the Medical Research Council, of England, several volumes of which have already been reviewed in this J. The present volume considers general questions relating to the subject of bacteriology and the contributors are Andrewes, Arkwright, Barnard, Browning, Bulloch, Chick, Gardner, Harden, McCombie, McLeod, St. John-Brooks, Slator and Thornton. The subjects considered are History, Morphology, Physics of the Bacterial Cell, Growth and Reproduction, Disinfection, Metabolism, Bacterial Respiration, Nomenclature and Classification, and Variation. Every one of these subjects is well discussed, and it is difficult to select those chapters of most interest and importance, but it may be stated that the chapters upon the history of bacteriology, by Bulloch; the metabolism of bacteria, by Harden; and variation in bacteria, by Arkwright, are especially well done and of great interest and value.
