    Abstract

    (1) THE unassuming title which Prof. Topley A has chosen for this new and important addition he has made to the bacteriologist's reference library does less than justice to its scope and the concise yet carefully reasoned treatment devoted to its twenty-one chapters. Though ostensibly for the student, and let us hope, the more advanced student, this individual effort of more than 400 closely printed pages will find a place on the expert's bookshelf alongside another still young arrival of composite authorship, the “Immunity” volume of the “System of Bacteriology” published by the Medical Research Council. Four years ago. Prof. Topley and his colleague, Prof. G. S. Wilson, of the London School of Hygiene, published their “Principles of Bacteriology and Immunity” in two volumes. The pages there given over to immunity problems have been entirely rewritten for incorporation in the “Outline”, and these with the addition of much new matter make up the substantial volume now before us.
