1 Thompson, LaVerne Ruth Introduction to Microorganisms (Second Edition)
Philadelphia W. B. Saunders Company 1949 Reprint Edition Hardcover Good+ with no dust jacket 

Spine sl;ightly slanted, corners slightly chipped, some shelfwear. Text has some underlining, mostly in pencil. Text includes drawings, photographs, charts and other illustrations.

The author states "The second edition of Introduction to Microorganisms has been written for the student whose chief interest lies in the field of health and welfare instead of in bacteriology per se. This book, therefore, places emphasis on those life activities of microorganisms which influence man and his environment. The content throughout has been selected in terms of public health implications to help the student develop an understanding of and an interest in the control and prevention of disease. Since the student is not required to recognize and identify microorganisms, relatively little space is devoted to the minute details of structure and chemistry which differentiate one from another. Instead the attention is directed to such questions as: Where does this parasite live? How does it enter the body? How does it produce disease? How does the host respond? How does it affect the welfare of man? Can the disease which it causes be prevented? Does this organism respond to antibiotics? These and similar questions make up the core of the book."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
