This book approaches the status of a classic among bacteriology books. It is very enjoyable reading in its very preciseness of presentation. It is a well-rounded textbook, free of superfluous material, but very suitable for introducing this field to any group particularly interested in comparative pathogenic bacteriology.

That portion of the book on the virus diseases is exemplary. The thoroughness of the sections on rabies and equine encephalomyelitis attest to the many original contributions of the authors on these subjects. Many rare or little-known virus diseases of animals are described. In addition to the conventional subjects of bacteriology, the allied fields of mycology and protozoölogy are very adequately presented and the bibliographies are well selected. The close relationship between the fields of human and veterinary bacteriology is repeatedly stressed.

While it is difficult to improve on a book of such wide recognition, its revision does bring many of the active subjects up to date.
