Excerpt from The Principles and Practice of Gynecology SO great have been the advance and change of views during the past four years in gynaecology, that the preparation of this edition has necessitated almost as much labor as rewriting the volume. Every portion has been thoroughly revised, a great deal left out, and much new matter added. The chapters on the relation of education and social condition to development; those on pelvic cellulitis; on the diseases of the ovary on ovariotomy; and on stone in the bladder, have been nearly rewritten. The chapters on prolapse of the vaginal walls; on lacerations at the vaginal outlet and through the sphincter ani and perinaeum; on the methods of partial and complete removal of the uterus for malignant disease on the surgical treatment of fibrous tumors; on diseases of the Fallopian tubes and on the diseases of the urethra, are essentially new, containing the views and experience of the author in a form which has not been presented to the profession before. To these chapters no fewer than one hundred and seventy-five pages of new material have been added. A portion of the manuscript of the first edition of this work was expunged, ' or rewritten, by the advice of a friend, with the object of omitting or modifying certain views therein expressed which were then deemed too decided. It was thought that the profession was not in a condition to receive views so radically different in character from those universally accepted. The opinion was expressed that even the success of the book might be jeopardized by urging the necessity for a revolution so complete as to establish a new school.
