The volume, which is edited by Drs. Fortescue Fox and Wyndham Lloyd, is a guide to the spas and health resorts, seaside and inland, of the British Isles and British Dominions and Colonies, giving particulars of their climate and rainfall, the characteristics of their baths and waters, if any, and indications of the conditions for which they are suitable. The Minister of Health contributes a foreword, and chapters are included on the science of waters and baths and on climates, with maps, charts and many illustrations.
