A Manual of Public Health


EARNEST efforts are being made to insist that candidates for the appointment of a medical officer of health shall have an adequate knowledge of sanitary science. The issue of this volume is therefore opportune. All the subjects of which a knowledge is required in examinations in hygiene and sanitary science are dealt with. Necessarily the ground travelled over is extensive, and some of the sections have not received that comprehensive treatment which they appear to us to need.

A Manual of Public Health.

By A. Wynter Blyth (London: Macmillan and Co., 1890.)
