r Institute in 1887; the great "Treatise on Hygiene and Public
Health," by Dr. Thomas Stevenson and Dr. Shirley Murphy, 3 vols. 9
(80s.; Churchill. London: 1892-4) ; and Palmberg and Newsholme’s
1 "Treatise on Public Health," describing the systems of various
l countries (London : 1893). See also, for special problems, Dr. G. V. V
J . Poore’s "Rural Hygiene" (ós. 6d.; Longmans. London: 1893)
and Dr. B. A. Whitelegge’s "Hygiene and Public Health" (London: ,
1899). Brief practical manuals are Taylor’s "Sanitary Inspector’s =
Handbook" (5s.; Lewis. London: 1897), and Willoughby’s "Health (
, OHicer’s Pocket Book " (7s. 6d.; Lockwood. London: 1893).
