Ross Institute of Tropical Hygiene, London, 1948. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Foreword, Preface & detailed Contents list to the front. The importance of Dr. Gilroy's work in the neighbourhood of Lagos is fully accredited by the success it has achieved, and its value emphasized by the words of Sir Hubert Walker, Director of Public Works at the time: "It may therefore truly be said that the value of the work to the war effort, the general health of Lagos and as a guide to similar work in future is incalculable." The details of Dr. Gilroy 's work refer to Lagos and its vicinity. The principles apply to any part of the world where dangerous anophelines breed in coastal swamps. In other places, however, variations in tidal level and other local conditions may affect the precise form which drainage should assume. These local variations should be fully enquired into and allowed for in preparing plans elsewhere. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 97 + 20 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact.
