OF

MEDICAL AND SUKGICAL PUBLICATIONS.



In asking the attention of the profession to the works contained in the following
pages, the publisher would state that no pains are spared to secure a continuance of
the confidence earned for the publications of the house by their careful selection and
accuracy and finish of execution.

The printed prices are those at which books can generally be supplied by booksellers
throughout the United States, who can readily procure for their customers any works
not kept in stock. Where access to bookstores is not convenient, books will be sent
by mail post-paid on receipt of the price, but no risks are assumed either on the
money or the books, and no publications but my own are supplied. Gentlemen will
therefore in most cases find it more convenient to deal with the nearest bookseller.

An ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE, of 64 octavo pages, handsomely printed, will be for-
warded by mail, postpaid, on receipt of ten cents.

In thus offering at a price unprecedentedly low, this vast amount of valuable
practical matter, the publisher felt that he could only be saved from loss by an
extent of circulation hitherto unknown in the annals of medical journalism. It is
therefore with much gratification that he is enabled to state that the marked appro-
bation of the profession, as evinced in the steady increase of the subscription list,
promises to render the enterprise a permanent one. He is happy to acknowledge the
1

valuable aid rendered by subscribers who have kindly made known among their friends
the advantages thus offered, and he confidently anticipates a continuance of the same
friendly interest, which, by enlarging the circulation of these periodicals, will enable
him to maintain them at the unexampled rate at which they are now supplied. Ar-
rangements have been made in London by which " BANKING'S ABSTRACT'' will be issued
here almost simultaneously with its appearance in England : and, with the cooperation
of the profession, the publisher trusts to succeed in his endeavor to lay on the table
of every reading practitioner in the United States a monthly, a quarterly, and a half-
yearly periodical at the comparatively trifling cost of Six DOLLARS per annum.

These periodicals are universally known for their high professional standing in their
several spheres.

THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES,

EDITED BY ISAAC HAYS, M.D.,

is published Quarterly, on the first of January, April, July, and October. Each
number contains nearly three hundred large octavo pages, appropriately illustrated,
wherever necessary. It has now been issued regularly for over FORTY years, during
nearly the whole of which time it has been under the control of the present editor.
Throughout this long period, it has maintained its position in the highest rank of
medical periodicals both at home and abroad, and has received the cordial support of
the entire profession in this country. Among its Collaborators will be found a large
number of the most distinguished names of the profession in every section of the
United States, rendering the department devoted to

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATIONS

full of varied and important matter, of great interest to all practitioners. Thus, during
1867, contributions have appeared in its pages from more than one hundred gentlemen
of the highest standing in the profession throughout the United States.*

Following this is the "REVIEW DEPARTMENT," containing extended and impartial
reviews of all important new works, together with numerous elaborate "BIBLIO-
GRAPHICAL NOTICES" of nearly all the publications of the day.

This is followed by the " QUARTERLY SUMMARY OF IMPROVEMENTS AND DISCOVERIES
IN THE MEDICAL SCIENCES," classified and arranged under different heads, presenting
a very complete digest of all that is new and interesting to the physician, abroad as
well as at home.

Thus, during the year 1867, the "JOURNAL" furnished to its subscribers One
Hundred and Sixteen Original Communications, Ninety Reviews and Bibliographical
Notices, and Two Hundred and Five articles in the Quarterly Summaries, making a
total of over FOUR HUNDRED articles emanating from the best professional minds in
America and Europe.

To old subscribers, many of whom have been on the list ferr twenty or thirty years,
the publisher feels that no promises for the future are necessary; but gentlemen who
may now propose for the first time to subscribe may rest assured that no exertion will
be spared to maintain the "JOURNAL" in the high position which it has so long occu-
pied as a national exponent of scientific medicine, and as a medium of intercommu-
nication between the profession of Europe and America to render it, in fact, neces-
sary to every practitioner who desires to keep on a level with the progress of his
science.

The subscription price of the "AMERICAN JOURNAL OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES" has
never been raised, during its long career. It is still FIVE DOLLARS per annum in ad-
vance, for which sum the subscriber receives in addition the "MEDICAL NEWS AND
LIBRARY," making in all about 1500 large octavo pages per annum, free of postage.

BANKING'S ABSTRACT OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES

is issued in half-yearly volumes, which will be delivered to subscribers about the first
of August, and first of February. Each volume contains about 300 closely printed
octavo pages, making six hundred pages per annum.

"BANKING'S ABSTRACT" has now been published in England regularly for more than
twenty years, and has acquired the highest reputation for the ability and industry
with which the essence of medical literature is condensed into its pages. It pur-
ports to be "A Digest of British and Continental Medicine, and of the progress <>f
Medicine and the Collateral Sciences,' 11 and it presents an abstract of all that is impor-
tant or interesting in European Medical Literature. Each article is carefully con-
densed, so as to present its substance in the smallest possible compass, thus affording
space for the very large amount of information laid before its readers. The volumes
of 1867, for instance, thus contained

FIFTY-FIVE ARTICLES ON GENERAL QUESTIONS IN MEDICINE.

NINETY-SEVEN ARTICLES ON SPECIAL QUESTIONS IN MEDICINE.

FIVE ARTICLES ON FORENSIC MEDICINE

THIRTY-TWO ARTICLES ON GENERAL QUESTIONS IN SURGERY.

ONE HUNDRED AND SEVEN ARTICLES ON SPECIAL QUESTIONS IN SURGERY.

SEVENTY-TWO ARTICLES ON MIDWIFERY AND DISEASES OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

FORTY-EIGHT ARTICLES ON MATERIA MEDICA AND THERAPEUTICS.

SIXTY-THREE REVIEWS AND BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES.

THREE ARTICLES IN APPENDIX.

Making in all four hundred and eighty-two articles in a single year. Each volume,
moreover, is systematically arranged, with an elaborate Table of Contents and a very
full Index, thus facilitating the researches of the reader in pursuit of particular sub-
jects, and enabling him to refer without loss of time to the vast amount of infor-
mation contained in its pages.

The subscription price of the "ABSTRACT," mailed free of postage, is Two
DOLLARS AND A HALF per annum, payable in advance. Single volumes, $1 50 each.

As stated above, however, it will be supplied in conjunction with the "AMERICAN
JOURNAL OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES" and the "MEDICAL NEWS AND LIBRARY," the
whole free of postage, for Six DOLLARS PER ANNUM IN ADVANCE.

For this small sum the subscriber will therefore receive three periodicals, each of
the highest reputation in its class, containing in all over TWO THOUSAND PAGES of the
choicest reading, and presenting a complete view of medical progress throughout the
world.

In this effort to bring so large an amount of practical information within the reach
