CLINICAL MEDICINE; a Systematic Treatise on the Diagnosis

and Treatment of Diseases. Designed for Students and Practitioners of Medicine. In
one large and handsome octavo volume of 795 pages; cloth, $4 50 ; leather, $5 50;
half Russia, $0. (Now Ready.)

The eminent >eacher who has written the volume
under consideration h*s recognised the needs of
the American profession, and the result ts all that
we could wish. The style In wblch it t> written is
peculiarly the author's; it is clear and forcible, and
marked by those cbaracterintiee which have ren-
dered him one of the best writers and teachers this
country has ever produced. We have not space for
so full a consideration of this remarkable work as
we would desire.— St. Louis Clin. Record, Oct. 1879.

It Is here that tbe skill and learning of the great
Clinician are displayed He has given us a store-
house of medical knowledge, excellent for the stu-
dent, convenient for the prac'itloner, tbe result of a
rong life of the most faithful clinical work, collect-
ed by an energy as vigilant «nd systematic as un-
tiring, and weighed by a Judgment no less clear
than his observation ie close.- Archives of Medi-
cine, Dee. ISTv

To give an adequate and n«eful conspectus of the
extensive field of modern eliuical m*»dloine is a task
of no ordinary difficulty; bat t> accomplish thl»
consistently, with brevity and clearness, the differ n»
subjects and their several part" receiving the atten-
tion which, relatively to their importance, medical
opinion c'aims for them, is still more difficult. This
ttsk we feel bound to say has been executed wl*h
more than partial success by Dr Flint, whose name
is already familiar to students of advanced medicine

in this country as that of the author of two works
of great merit on special subjects, and of numerons
papers, exhibiting much originality and extensive
research— The Dublin Journal, Dec. 1870

There Is every reason to believe that this book
will be well received. The sctlve practitioner Is
frequently In need of some work that will enable
him to obtain Information In the diagnosis and
treatment of cases with comparatively little labor.
Dr. Flint has the faculty of expressing himself
clearly, and at the same time so concisely as to
enable tbe searcher to traverse the entire ground
of bis search, and at the same time obtain all that
IsessentUl, witbont plodding through an interml-
uab'e space.— if. T. Med. Jour., Nov. 1879

The great object is to piece before the reader the
latest observations and experience in dlsguoels and
treat nent. Such a w »rk is especially valuable to
students. It Is complete in 'ts special design, and
yet so condensed, that he can by its aid, keep up
with the lectures on practice withont neglecting
other branches. It will not e»cipe tbe notlre of the
practitioner that such a work is most valuable iu
cul'lug points in diagnosis and treatment In the in-
tervals between the dally rounds of visits since he
can in a few minutes refresh his memory, or learn
the I ttest advance In tbe treatment of diseases which
demand his instant a'tentlon.— (ftftctnmatf Lancet

The very great sucoess whioh has exhausted four large editions of this work shows that the
author has snooeeded in supplying a want felt by a large portion of the profession. It has also
enabled him in successive revisions to perfect the details of his plan, and to render the work
still more worthy of the favor with whioh it has been received. The present edition has had
sedulous attention at the hands of the author to bring it in every way on a level with the moat

continuance of the very great favor with which it has hitherto been received.

Volume I. (just ready) contains General Diseases and Diseases of the Nervous System,
Volume II. (just ready) contnins Diseases of Respiratory and Circulatory Systems.
Volume III. (just rmdy) contains Diseases of the Digestive and Blood Glandular
Systems, of the Urihary Organs, of the Female Reproductive System, and of the
Cutaneous System.
Reynolds's System of Medicine, recently completed, has acquired, since the first appearance
of the first volume, the well- deserved reputation of being the work in which modern British
medicine is presented in its fullest and most practical form. This could scarce be otherwise in
view of the fact that it is the result of the collaboration of the leading minds of the profession,
each subject being treated by some gentleman who is regarded as its highest authority — as for
instance, Diseases of the Bladder by Sir Hbnry Thompson, Malpositions of the Uterus by
Graily Hewitt, Insanity by Henry Maudsley, Consumption by J. Hughes Bbnnet, Dis-
eases of the Spine by Charges Bland Radcliffe, Pericarditis by Francis Sibson, Alcoholism
by Francis B. Anstib. Renal Affections by William Roberts, Asthma by Hyde Salter,
Cerebral Affections by H Charlton Bastian, Gout and Rheumatism by Alfred Baring Gar-
bod, Constitutional Syphilis by Jonathan Hutchinson, Diseases of the Stomach by Wilson
Fox, Diseases of the Skin by Balmanno Squire, Affections of the Larynx by Morell Mac-
kenzie, Diseases of the Rectum by Blizard Curling, Diabetes by Laudrr Brunton, Intes-
tinal Diseases by John Syer Bristowe, Catalepsy and Somnambulism by Thomas Kino Cham-
bers, Apoplexy by J. Hughlinqs Jackson, Angina Pectoris by Professor Gairdner, Emphy-
sema of the Lungs by Sir William Jbnner, etc etc. All the leading schools in Great Britain
have contributed their best men in generous rivalry, to build up this monument of medical sci-
ence. St. Bartholomew's, Guy's, St Thomas's, University College, St. Mary's, in London, while
the Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Manchester schools are equally well represented, the Army Medical
School at Netley, the military and naval services, and the public health boards. That a work
conceived in such aspirin, and carried out under such auspioes should prove an indispensable
treasury of facts and experience, suited to the daily wants of the practitioner, was inevitable, and
the aucoess which it has enjoyed in England, and the reputation which it has acquired on this
side of the Atlantic, hnve sealed it with the approbation of the two pre-eminently practical nations.
Its large size and high price having kept it beyond the reach of many practitioners in this
country who desire to possess it, a demand has arisen for an edition at a price which shall ren-
der it accessible to all. To meet this demand the present edition has been undertaken. The
five volumes and five thousand pages of the original have, by toe use of a smaller type and double
columns, been compressed into three volumes of over three thousand pages, clearly and hand-
somely printed, and offered at a price which renders it one of the cheapest works ever presented
te the American profession.

But not only is the American edition more convenient and lower priced than the English;
it is also better and more complete. Some years having elapsed since 'the appearance of a
portion of the work, additions are required to bring up the subjects to the existing condition
of science. Some diseases, alxo, which are comparatively unimportant in England, require more
elaborate treatment to adapt the articles devoted to them to the wants of the American physi-
oian ; and there are points on which the received practice in this country differs from that
adopted abroad. The supplying of these deficiencies has been undertaken by Hebry Harts-
hornb, M.D.,late Professor of Hygiene in the University of Pennsylvania, who has endeavored
to render the Work fully up to the day, and as useful to the American physician as it has proved
to be to his English brethren. The number of illustrations has also been largely increased, and
no effort spared to render the typographical execution unexceptionable in every respect.

Really too muoh praise can scarcely be given to
this noble book. It is a cyclopedia of medicine
written by some of the best men ot Europe. It It
full of asefnl information such as one finds frequeot
need of in one's daily work As a book of reference
it is invaluable. It it np with the times. It is clear
and concentrated in style, and Us form is worthy
of its famous publisher. — Louisville Med. News,
Jan. 31, 1880.

" Reynolds* System of Medicine" is ju'tly con-
sidered the most popular work on the principles and
practice of medicine in the English language The
contributors to this work are gentlemen of well-
known reputation on both sides of the Atlantic.
Each gentleman has striven to make bis part of the
work as practical as possible, and the information
contained is such as is needed by the busy practi-
tioner.— St. Louis Med. and Burg. Journ., Jan. '80.

Dr. Hartshorne has made ample additions and
revisions, all of which give Increased value to the
▼olume, and render it mere useful to the Ameri-
chii practitioner. There is no volume in English
medical literature more valuable, and erery pur-
chaser will, on becoming familiar with it, congrat-

house of information, la regard to so many of the

lard's Med. Journ., Feb. 1880.

There is no medical work which we have in times
past more frequently and fully consulted when per*
plezed by doubts as to treatment, or by having un-
usual or apparently inexplicable symptoms pre-
sented to us than "Reynolds' System of Medicine."
Among its contributors are gentlemen who are as
well known by reputation upon this side of the
Atlantis as In Great Britain, and whose right te
speak with authority upon the subjects about
which they have written, is recognised the world
over. They have evidently striven to make their
esKays as practical as possible, and while these are
sufficiently full to entitle them to the name of
monographs, they are not loaded down with such
an amount of detail as to render them wearisome
to the general reader. In a word, they contain just
t ha» kind of information whiob the busy practitioner
frequently finds himself in need of. In order that
any deficiencies may be supplied, the publishers
have committed the preparation of the book for the
press to Dr. Henry Hartshorne, who*>e judicious
noteedtetrlbuted throughout the volume afford abun-
dant evidence of the thoroughness of the rerUfoii to
which he has subjected it.— Am. Jour.Med. 8cien

CATION TO MEDICINE. In one very handsome 8vo. volume of about 270 pages,
with 98 illustrations. Cloth, $2 50. (Just ready.)


' I have attempted in the preparation of this work to avoid these errori; to prepare on<» so
simple in statement that a student without previous acquaintance with the subjeot, may read-
ily master the essentials; so complete as to embrace the whole subject of medical electricity,
and so condensed as to be complete in a moderate compass. I have endeavored to keep con-
stantly in view the needs* of the two classes for whom the work is prepared — students and prac-
titioners. I have as umed an entire unncquaintanoe with the elements of the subjeot as the
point of departure — for I am addressing those who have either failed to acquire this prelimi-
nary knowledge, or having acquired it, fitd that alter the lapse of years, it has become misty
and confused. In the accounts of eleotroal phenomena I have aihered to the modes of expres-
sion with which the medical electrical text-books have made us familiar.

This book, then, must be regarded as the exposition of electricity as a remedial agent, made
by a medio*) practitioner for the use of medical practitioners. No oUiui is made on the ground
of pure science. It is believed, however, that the work makes an adequate presentation of the
subjeot, regarding electricity as a remedial agent— as one of the means employed for the treat-
ment and cure of disease.

So <ar as we know, the need of a clear, rtmple,
uatecholcal, reliable, conel»e. and modern treatise
upon tbe subject of medical electricity is only sup*
plied by tbe volame nnder oon^deration. It is not
too much to say that, if availed of, It will render
accessible to a vast n timber of members of the pro-
fession a therapeutic agent of the greatest value, but
which has heretofore been practically of no use
whatever to ihem.— Maryland M*d. Journal, Jane
1, 1881.

We have no* yet cotne across a book that can com-
pare wi;h this in clearness and simplicity of state
ment. We have for a long time needed a textbook
on medical electricity, condensed and yet complete,
and this want has been well supplied by the di lan-
guished author. The 11 lust ratio u« are elegant, and
the book as a whole Is a valuable addition to the
collection of any student or practitioner.— Buffalo
Med. and Surg. Journal, June, 1881.

As a whole, the book must be looked upon ss an
exposition of electricity for remedial purposes, writ-
ten by a medical practitioner for the use of medical

practitioners. From this standpoint tbe work Is
worthy of the careful study of all who desire to in-
vestigate thi* subject for parely practical purposes.
ThW work meets a want of very many students and
medical practitioners. We greatly err if it be not
gladly welcomed by them. The author, from his
long experience as a practitioner, Is admirably fitted
to perform the task of writing a work of this kind
for this special class of men. — Dttrvit Lancet, June,

This book is expressive of careful research and a
nice discrimination in the selection of #uch matter
from that at the author's command as l* best adapted
for the guidance and instruction of the physician
whose interest In electricity is proportionate to its
practical bearing on diagnosis and treatment. It is
thorough, it Is accurate, it is readable, and above
all is essentially ufillzable, if we msy use the word,
and readers easy of access to the general practitioner

able therapeutic agent.— #. T. Medical Gas. t June

The life-long devotion of the author to the subjeots discussed in this volume has rendered it
eminently desirable that tbe results of his labors should be embodied for the benefi' of tho<*e
who may experience the difficulties oonneoted with the treatment of this class of disease.
Many of these lectures are fresh studies of hysterical affections; others treat of the modifica-
tions his views have undergone in regard to certain forms of treatment, while, throughout the
whole work, he has been careful to keep in view the practical lessons of his oases.

It is a record of a number of very remarkable , ordinarily rich In acute observation and sound in-
cases, with acute analyse* and discussions, clinical, I atructioa. The reputation of the author is a soar-

physiological, and therapeutical It is a book to
which the physician meeting wi h a new hysterical
experience, or In doubt whether hl» new experience
is hysterical, may well turn with a well-grounded
ht pe of finding a parallelism ; it will be a new ex-
perience, indeed, if no similar one is here recorded
—Phila. Med. Times, June 4, 1881.

The name of the author is sufficient guarantee that
these topics are ably and appreciative ly dtsrus»ed ;
suffice it tossy that the principles of treatment, both
hygienic and therapeutic, are clearly Indicated.
The articles being In the form of clinical lectures,

antes of that, and no reader will be disappointed.
