Studies in the Bacteriology and Etiblogy of Oriental Plague


THE appearance of this book at the present time is opportune, for plague is ravaging our Indian Empire some 900,000 deaths having been recorded there from January 1 to May 31 this year. The work is based on Dr. Klein's large experience of the bacteriological examination of cases which clinically and epidemiologically were under suspicion of being plague. Many epizootics among rats on shipboard were also investigated by Dr. Klein, and the results of his examinations are included. The data so obtained and published in many scattered papers, are thus brought into a convenient form for reference.
