The first edition of this volume was published in 1963. Since then, it has become a standard authoritative text in medical mycology. This reception is well deserved. The book is comprehensive, providing a good overview of the field; it is well illustrated and very well written.

Since its initial publication, there have been many advances in the field of medical mycology. These new developments have made necessary a second edition of the book. In their attempt to bring this work up to date, the authors have extensively revised and enlarged the first four chapters dealing with general aspects of medical mycology. These chapters are entitled: 1 Role of Fungi in the Economy of Nature, 2 Characterization of the Fungi and Actinomycetes, 3 Relation of Medical Mycology to General Mycology, and 4 Medical Mycology. Other chapters have similarly been revised. In addition, the second edition has been expanded to include new chapters on Phaeosporotrichosis, Mycotic Keratitis, and the algal disease, Protothecosis.
