This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1855 edition. Excerpt: ...may last months, and even several years. It never terminates in suppuration, nor does it ever transgress certain limits.
