Baillière's comprehensive veterinary dictionary.
Veterinarians and others engaged in the animal sciences have had to wait a long time for such a good dictionary of technical terms, for this is the first really comprehensive compilation. It provides definitions for terms relating to animals (domestic and wild), their husbandry and diseases, and all the associated techniques, chemicals, micro-organisms and parasites. Tables at the end of the dictionary provide Latin anatomical terms and their English equivalents, as well as a classification of animal viruses and various reference values. It is the most valuable reference work to have appeared for many years.
