The first instalment of the third series of the atlas of epidemic diseases should be specially interesting to students of tropical medicine in this country because five of its ten maps illustrate disease conditions in the Americas, namely (a) plague in South America 1899–1953; (b) yellow fever in South America 1945–1954; (c) leishmaniasis in South America 1911–1955; (d) schistosomiasis mansoni in South America 1908–1953 and (e) filariasis in South America 1939–1955, while a sixth map shows the distribution of the population in South and Central America 1950/54. The remaining maps are devoted to brucellosis in Europe, 1929–1955; rabies in Africa, 1947–1953, and to the distribution of schistosomiasis hematobia and Schistosomiasis mansoni and their vectors around 1955 in Africa and the adjacent regions. As in the former issues of the Atlas these main maps, which are beautifully executed in colors, are accompanied by supplementary materials, consisting of black-and-white maps and tabulations as well as by explanatory articles in German and English.
