A Review of Scott's Fingerprint Mechanics
Excellent textbooks on the fingerprint profession are extremely rare. This text must be included in that group. It examines all phases of latent print development and crime scene procedures and provides the reader with keen data on the equipment necessary for these methods. This reviewer is impressed with the detailed but easily understood explanations given to each facet of fingerprinting discussed. The structure of the book indicates that substantial consideration was given to the arrangement of the subject matter. Illustrations are both current and lucid.
