About this eBook

PREFACE TO THE FOl RTH EDITION T he demand for a further edition of my book at this time has made it necessary for me, for a num ber of reasons, to produce what might be described as an interim edition, that is an edition which is confined for the most part to revision of the existing text so that it may be brought up to date. I had hoped to have rewritten the whole book because long experience as a teacher and examiner has convinced me that the conventional approach to the undergraduate study of pathology, using this term in its widest sense, calls for several changes. T o effect these, however, the whole book would require to be recast, an undertaking which calls for more tim e than that available for the preparation of this edition. I have, therefore, been compelled to adopt a compromise, namely, to publish a fourth edition sufficient to meet students needs at the moment and to leave until the fifth edition the major task of recasting and rewriting the whole book, on which I am at present engaged. Special mention, however, requires to be made of Chapters X X II and X X III on Protozoal Diseases. These being more or less self-contained, they have been extensively revised, and for this I am indebted to M r. R. B. Griffiths, B.V.Sc., M .R.C.V.S., of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. T h e book includes all the illustrations used in the previous edition. W ith few exceptions, they are original and were prepared from specimens in the museum of the Department of Veterinary Pathology in the University of Liverpool. Borrowed specimens and illustrations reproduced from other sources have been acknowledged under the respective figures. T h e author s thanks are due to the following for permission to use illustrations Messrs. Heinemann, Messrs. Oliver and Boyd, T h e Cambridge University Press, T he Controller, H.M. Stationery Office, Messrs. H. R. G rubb, Messrs. Bailliere, Tindall
and Cox, Messrs. Humphrey Milford, T he Trustees, British Museum, and the Editor of The Veterinary Record. I would also like to record my appreciation of the advice and assistance so freely given by my colleagues on the staff o f the University o f Liverpool, and in particular to M r. G . Weston, F .I.M .L .T ., for his help with the illustrations. Finally, I must thank the publishers for the care with which they have carried out their share of the work and also for their unfailing kindness and courtesy. G w il y m O . D avies. U n iv b is ity
