This volume has been prepared for ready reference on the subject of human parasitology by the practicing physician. This purpose it fulfils admirably. As is inevitable when so broad a subject is to be presented in one small volume, a rather limited consideration must be given to each subject. A few minor omissions might have been made to allow more space for the subject in hand. It would seem hardly necessary in a book prepared for physicians to waste space on a chapter devoted to the care and use of the microscope or to include even an abbreviated consideration of blood examination. Also the group of spiro chaetacia should have been left to the bacteriologist. This space could have been used advantageously in expanding a valuable text on the subject of animal parasites.
A bibliography which would include not only the larger texts but detailed references to the special subject
