Abstract

The Briesemeister Elliptical Equal-Area Projection adopted may be esthetically satisfying to cartographers but is markedly inferior to the distorted but useful Mercator projection in avoiding meaningless clutter of superimposed symbols. The references listed on the reverse of the map are incomplete and nondiscriminating, e.g., omission of “Leptospirosen” by Gsell and Wiesmann (1952) and “The Laboratory Diagnosis of Leptospirosis” by Wolff (1954), and failure to include primary references in the United States. The section entitled Epidemiology is a hodge-podge of assumptions, mis-statements and mistakes. It is believed that omission of this plate from the Atlas would materially enhance its value.
