More a compact encyclopedia than a primer (Fibel).
First half presents systematic, detailed, and documented descriptions of the nature (chemical and physical properties, spectrum and mechanisms of action) and use of antibiotic drugs (including sulfonamides), following a short review of general principles. Second half reviews agents and regimens for specific infections.
A handbook unlike any recent publication in English; nearest relatives would be The Pfizer Handbook of Microbial Metabolites, which concentrates on chemical characterizations for a wider range of compounds, and Conn's Current Therapy, with respect to drug use.
