Product Description

(London, Longmans, Green & Co, 1915)

12mo; original cloth-backed pictorial boards slightly rubbed and soiled; slight browning throughout; pp. (iv) + 90 including index; 22 black-and-white illustrations. Good condition. Discusses the disease-carrying propensities of the House Fly. If a few score of venomous snakes accidentally escaped in a town there would be a profound sensation and a sense of insecurity of life would be ever present until they were destroyed. Yet the presence of five hundred cobras scattered throughout a city would be as nothing in comparison to the awful the appalling danger and risks incurred by the presence of the common House Fly.””
