Excerpt from Skin Diseases: Their Description, Pathology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
I have, with the consent of the author - whose engagements would not permit him at this time to revise the last edition of his work - prepared the present volume for the American Student and Practitioner.
The undeniable want of such a work in this country is, I think, sufficient apology for offering this edition to the profession.
I know of no work on Dermatology in our language that combines so completely the results of a thorough knowledge of the pathology of skin diseases, such sound clinical observation, and so rational a system in the application of therapeutics.
The attractive manner in which the book is written will, I feel assured, be the means of conveying a better knowledge of a large class of interesting diseases which have not in this country, until recently, received the attention which their character and importance deserve.
