Transcriber’s notes:

Small viewing devices might not display this e-book correctlybecause of the complexity of the text, its length, and the presencewithin it of some uncommon typographic characters. It is best viewed ona large screen with character encoding set to Unicode (UTF-8).

The text has mostly been preserved in its original form, includinginconsistent italics, capitalisation, hyphenation and diacritics;however, some infelicities have been corrected silently, e.g.missing/inconsistent punctuation, parentheses and spacing. Severalfootnote markers have been inserted where they were missing from thetext. The very long table of contents has somewhat inconsistentlevels of indentation that don’t correspond accurately with headingsused in the text. Some illustrations have been moved nearer to therelevant text and their locations may differ from those specifiedin the list of illustrations. A few illustrations that lacked anidentifying number have been correctly numbered. The book containsextensive sections of quoted text but these are identified by squarebrackets rather than by traditional quotation marks. Several shortpassages of text were inserted by the printer at the last minute, andthese are enclosed in lightly shaded text boxes. Two different sizedfonts were used to print the original body text, a feature that isreplicated in this e-transcription.

A black underline indicates a hyperlink to a page, illustrationor footnote. A red dashed underline indicates the presenceof a concealed comment that can be viewed by hovering themouse pointer over the underlinedtext. Page numbers are shown in theright margin and footnotes are listed at the end. Footnotes are listed at the end.

Alist of spelling corrections andinconsistencies is appended at the end of the book.

Dr. Max Braun’s “Die Tierischen Parasiten des Menschen” (4th Edition, 1908) and anAppendix by Dr. Otto Seifert.


The English edition of Braun’s “Die Tierischen Parasiten desMenschen,” produced in 1906, being out of print, the publishersdecided to issue another edition based on the translation of Braun’sfourth German edition, which appeared in 1908, to which had beenadded an appendix, by Dr. Otto Seifert on Treatment, etc.

When the work was considered with a view to a new edition,it was found that a vast amount of new matter had to be incorporated,numerous alterations essential for bringing it up to date were necessitated,and many omissions were inevitable. The result is that parts ofthe book have been rewritten, and, apart from early historical references,the work of Braun has disappeared. This is more particularly the casewith the Protozoa section of the present work. The numerous additions,due to the great output of scientific literature and other delays inpublication, have led to the book being somewhat less homogeneousthan we desired, and have necessitated the use of appendices toallow of the presentation of new facts only recently ascertained.Many new illustrations have been added or substituted for older, lessdetailed ones. Some of these new figures were drawn specially forthis book.

The first section, on the Protozoa, has been written by Dr. Fantham,there being little of the original text left except parts of the historicalportions, and thus the section on Protozoa must be considered asnew. The second section, on Worms (except the Acanthocephala,Gordiidæ and Hirudinea), has been remodelled by Professor Stephensto such an extent that this, too, must not be looked upon as atranslation of Braun’s book. With regard to the Arthropoda,much remains as in the last English edition, but some new matteradded by Braun in his fourth German edition is included, and muchnew matter by Mr. Theobald has been incorporated. As regardsthe Appendix by Dr. Seifert, the first section has been remodelled,but the sections on the Helminthes and the Arthropoda are practicallytranslations of the original.

The authors desire to express their thanks to Miss A. Porter, D.Sc.,J. P. Sharples, Esq., B.A., M.R.C.S., and H. F. Carter, Esq., F.E.S.,for valuable help. They also wish to thank the authors, editors, andpublishers of several manuals and journals for their courtesy inallowing the reproduction of certain of their illustrations. In thisconnection mention must be made more particularly of ProfessorCastellani, Dr. Chalmers, Professor Doflein, Dr. Leiper, the lateProfessor Minchin, Professor Nuttall, Dr. Wenyon, Mr. Edw. Arnold,Messrs. Baillière, Tindall and Cox, Messrs. Black, Messrs. Cassell,Dr. Gustav Fischer, Messrs. Heinemann, the Cambridge UniversityPress, the Editors of the Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology,the Editors of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, and the Editorof the Tropical Diseases Bulletin.
