of health; and in Appendix II., I have added a price-
list of analytical apparatus and reagents referred to in
different portions of the work. It will be seen that,
as regards food and water, I have only dealt with
qualitative examination, so that those who are desirous
of becoming proficient in quantitative analysis as well
should procure Dr. Parkes' Manual.

While I have endeavoured to notice briefly all the

points which are of importance to medical officers of

health, I have so arranged the work that it may prove

useful as a text-book to medical students, and as a

handy book to medical practitioners generally. To all

those outside the profession who are interested in sani-

tary matters, and who may care to read the work, I

may at least say that it contains some amount of in-
formation freed from technicalities and worth knowing.
