Topley And Wilson's Principles Of Bacteriology, Virology And Immunity. Vol.1, [General Microbiology And Immunity]

£14.99

Product description

This is the seventh edition, published in 1983, volume 1 only. It is complete with its dustjacket and is bound in blue-cloth boards which are gilt-stamped on the spine. The dustjacket is very sunned on the spine, rubbed and bumped along all edges, and there is a small tear on a back corner. The page block is clean but yellowing and a little warped. The binding is slightly cocked but otherwise the volume is in a reasonable, used condition.

This first volume provides a general introduction to bacteriology, including an account of the morphology, physiology and variability of bacteria, disinfection, antibiotics, bacterial genetics and bacteriophages, bacterial ecology and the normal flora of the body and the bacteriology of the air, water and milk. The second area is that of immunology and explanations for many of the processes involved in the response to infection and work on immunoglobulins, lymphocyte functions and the major histocompatibility complex.

Volume 1 provides a firm foundation for the general microbiologist who intends to work on bacterial chemistry, molecular biology, genetic engineering or the prevention and control of infectious diseases. Those engaged in other branches of clinical medicine and virology may also need it for purposes of reference.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
