Applied Mycology and Bacteriology


THIS little book fills the need for a simple introduction to the study and control of bacteria and fungi. The treatment given herein is lucid, comprehensive and accurate. The book may be cordially recommended, therefore, to those, such as chemists and others, having interests in the supervision of foods, water, textiles and perishable goods generally, who wish to obtain some understanding of the agents of decay and how to circumvent them. Even the specializing microbiologist can learn of developments outside his own sphere. Production is good, and misprints are all but absent.
