Abstract

CHAP. I. of this volume deals with the Fungi pathogenic to man and is a valuable addition to the ordinary bacteriological literature. We agree with the authors that the space allotted to mycology is so restricted that it is impossible to cover the field even in summary, and we feel that the volume would have been improved if considerably more space had been given to this subject, which is so inadequately dealt with in all medical works. The gain to the book would have been great, and the loss would have been slight if some of the other chapters—for example, those on syphilis and the normal bacterial flora of man—had been even severely cut by the editors in order to give more space to mycology. The authors, however, have made the most of the pages allotted to them, and we congratulate them on a really valuable contribution.
