In the 12 years since its first edition (sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Section of Farbenfabriken Bayer A.G., Leverkusen), this small volume has remained one of the more succinctly accurate and by all odds, the most esthetically pleasing recently published human parasitology text. A commercially available revision is certainly welcome, even with a soft cover of dubious durability. The title is somewhat misleading, for while the book is built around 31 plates (all but 5 in colors so faithfully done that they approach the quality of 1900–1924 lithographs), this is more than a picture-book of muted pastel-parasites. Following a general and epidemiologically oriented introduction, 29 chapters cover protozoan, trematode, cestode and nematode agents and the diseases they cause, singly or in related groups. Two final black and white plates show comparative diagnostic features of protozoan cysts, helminth eggs and larvae and of adults of the commonest helminths.
