English, M.P. 1990. Victorian values. The life and times of Dr. Edwin Lankester, M.D., F.R.S. This is the story of a Victorian doctor and scientist, widely know and respected in his lifetime. His temperament and chosen profession led him into ceaseless conflict with a class-conscious, mean and callous establishment. Because of his poor background, he did not earn a doctorate from older established British universities, thus he was not- in the eyes of the all-powerful medical colleges, a fit person to practise as a physician in London. Furious, he set about as a lecturer and writer on biological and nutritional matters until he was once again victimised when his Civil Service masters dismissed him for making improvements beyond his brief. It was not until 1856 when the Public Health Act was passed when he was appointed Medical Officer for Health for his own parish. But he continued to struggle with the wealthy classes for the bare minimum of funds necessary to remedy the atrocious conditions in the slums. 187 p. mand B&W photos.

Sims (editor) at al. 1996. Atlas of British diatoms. This comprehensive set of illustrations of freshwater and marine diatoms provides diatomists for the first time with detailed scale drawings of some 2,000 species. This encompasses all the common species, most of which are world-wide in distribution. The illustrations are mainly the work of H.G. Barber and thus in a uniform style and magnification. Some additional plates have been provided by J.R. Carter and all have been admirably rearranged in an alphabetical order of genera and species by B. Hartley to form a user-friendly guide to the identification of this most abundant group of organisms. The only comparable work is Schmidt's Atlas which was published between 1874 and 1959 but that Atlas has the species scattered. The present Atlas clusters the species (e.g. 42 plates of Navicula) and will form a major source book with the classification having been brought up to date. The authors have an extremely detailed knowledge of diatoms (well over 100 years in total experience) with a deep understanding of the variation during the growth cycle - this is illustrated by multiple drawings of most taxa. In all there are over 7,000 illustrations, approx. 600 pages. hardcover.  Trade Cloth ISBN 0-948737-45-X.  $170.00
