    Abstract

    IN this handbook the author has aimed at collecting together the main facts concerning preventable diseases and presenting them in a convenient form for the use of those interested in the promotion of public health. The work is in the main a compilation of extracts from the most varied sources, and references are given which enable the original authorities to be consulted. It is difficult to speak too highly of the care and industry with which Mr. Russell has fulfilled this task, and of the completeness with which the work has been brought up to date.

    Epidemics, Plagues and Fevers: their Causes and Prevention.

    By the Hon. Rollo Russell. (London: Edward Stanford, 1892.)
