This useful work which merits a wide distribution, attempts by drawings, diagrams and description to show the appearance of stained parasites in lysed blood smears, and to define the critera by which species may be identified, and, in addition describes techniques for the preparation of satisfactory blood smears, with their staining, either by Giemsa's stain or the quick buffered Romanowsky method known by the author's name.
