The author, Doctor Norman-Taylor, has been almost continuously engaged in the compilation and editing of this comprehensive bibliography on medical and paramedical research in the South Pacific from 1949, when the South Pacific Commission was founded, through December 1963. Each reference (pp. 1–296) includes author(s), subject, publication source and year. Classification of subjects is by library code numbers (610-618.97). There follows an Alphabetical Index of References to Health by subject, with its code, so that no difficulty is experienced in locating reference category groups, viz., Arbor-virus fevers—614.529; parasitic diseases—614.55. In addition, there are an Index of Authors and an Alphabetical List of Journals from which the references have been obtained.
The volume is offset printed, approximately 8″ by 10″, in hard paper cover. Doctor Norman-Taylor has rendered a valuable service for all persons desiring source information on medical research in the South Pacific.
