This volume includes historical notes by Dr. Clendening and actual reproductions of the original writings, which have achieved a place in the history of medicine in the form, however, of English translations. There is an extensive index, which will aid the physician in reference to the fields in which he is especially concerned. Previously works of a similar character by Camac and Major and the various volumes of selected readings have served as models for this volume, but the author has obviously been guided largely by his own interests. A special feature is the inclusion in this volume of quotations from literature not definitely medical as, for example, some of the writings of Molière, Macaulay and Le Sage.
