Veterinary Protozoology

Article metrics


THIS book has been written for veterinary students, practising veterinarians and agricultural students, and its scope is similar to that of U. F. Richardson's book reviewed recently in these columns (Nature, 162, 756 ; 1948). It is a useful book, full of practical information ; but the size of its page (11 in. × 8¼ in.) makes it rather inconvenient to handle, and its small type, clear though it is, is not read with comfort on a page of this size. Its illustrations, with the exception of the frontispiece, are all in line and stipple, and are all unusually large. Many of them are so much simplified that they lose much of their value. One cannot help thinking that a reduction of their size would have made a smaller page possible and would have released space for more of the useful text.
