This revised edition contains 103 engravings and 8 color plates, with twenty-five contributors from both the U. S. Army and civilian institutions. Advice and assistance was given by many from the Army, U. S. Public Health Service and prominent civilians.
The compilation of contents is divided into XI parts, and covers: Clinical Pathology; Chemistry; Mycology; Bacteriology; Rickettsiae and Filtrable Viruses; Protozoology; Helminthology; Entomology; Pathology; Special Veterinary Laboratory Methods, and Statistical Methods.
With so many subjects it is condensed to the essential recognized technical procedures. The printing and paper are excellent. The binding is poor. It contains much valuable and useful information, and is a cross-section of thought from many parts of the country. Necessity demands that for all students no one book suffices.
