PREFACE TO THE NEW EDITION.
In view of the great advances in the science and practice of Public Health since the first appearance of this Manual in 1890, the present edition (the tenth) has been revised, rearranged, and, where necessary, rewritten. In recent years many important additions to the official duties of Medical Officers of Health have been made, and fuller application of scientific knowledge is now required in preventive medicine. The object of the Manual is mainly to present a concise summary of the present position, for the purposes of the Medical Officer of Health and of the student.
