The first part of the World-Atlas of Epidemic Diseases is an imposing volume of portfolio sise, solidly bound with the aid of brass book-screws so that maps and text-pages are changeable as well as readable side by side. It contains, besides 12 “basic” (geographical) maps of the various parts of the world, those dealing respectively with (a) epidemics caused by bacteria (15); (b) spirochetal diseases (4); (c) virus-caused diseases (7); (d) louse-borne typhus (2); (e) protozoan and metazoan diseases (5); and 7 maps illustrating observations on climatology and population distribution. While most of the maps depict epidemic situations met with in Europe, there are some noteworthy exceptions. For instance, one interesting map shows the pandemic spread of cholera during the period 1863–68 and another still more valuable map, the global distribution of leptospirosis 1915–1950.
