This work is a revision of the “Handbook of Medical Entomology” by these authors which appeared in 1915. It deals with the structure and recognition, biology, taxonomy, disease relationship and control of arthropods of medical importance.

The present form is far more attractive, in several respects, than the earlier edition, which met with such a cordial reception. There is a much improved arrangement of the material, treating the various groups in their systematic (natural) order. The information concerning each group is brought up-to-date by an excellent digest of the literature and the value of this is enhanced by a bibliography covering 30 pages at the end of the text. The book is fully illustrated with 184 figures of which about 50 are original. In general there is a slightly better reproduction of these than in the earlier publication. Rather elaborate keys are given and with their included illustrations extend over 60 pages of the text.
