Excerpt from A Reference Handbook of the Medical Sciences, Vol. 1 of 8: Embracing the Entire Range of Scientific and Practical Medicine and Allied Science
The thanks of the editor are due to the many contributors to the former editions of this work who have revised their articles, preserving the framework but rewriting them with the ripened experience of thirteen years of added work in their special lines. To those also who have contributed for the first time to this edition or have added to the number of their former contributions, the editor desires to express his gratitude for their prized assistance. And finally he wishes to record his obligation to the many friends who have aided him by suggestions of articles and of writers, and especially to Dr. Buck for encourage ment and advice on many points. The Publishers, by their ready acceptance of his suggestions, sometimes involving greatly increased expense, have lightened his labors in no small measure.
