Medical Research Council A System of Bacteriology in relation to Medicine


THIS volume deals wholly with virus diseases and the bacteriophage. A review of it is somewhat difficult because divergent opinions exist regarding these viruses and the diseases they produce, and much of the information is necessarily uncertain and based on somewhat feeble foundations. At the same time, the interest in the subject is widespread, and it is well to have collected the main facts and theories into one volume.
