This encyclopedic volume is the second edition of a text-book published seven years ago, and during this period, as the authors state, there has been such a rapid advance in the science of bacteriology that the revision of the first edition has been difficult and has resulted in what is practically a new work, much more extended and valuable than the original edition, although the latter was a very valuable textbook upon the subject. In this work not only are the infective diseases of man considered most fully, but a large amount of space has been devoted to those of the lower animals, the work thus being rendered of interest not only to the medical student and the physician but also to veterinarians.

The work is divided into four parts: Part I treating of general bacteriology and containing 225 pages; Part II, of systematic bacteriology, containing 502 pages.
