IN MONTHLY PARTS.
A DICTIONARY OF PRACTICAL MEDICINE,

Comprising General Pathology, the Nature and Treatment of Diseases, Morbid Structures, and the Disorders especially incident to climates, to the sex, and to the different epochs of life. With numerous prescriptions for the medicines recommended : a classification of disease according to pathological principles; a copious bibliography, with references, and an Appendix of approved formula, &c &c. By JAMES COPLAND M. D., F. B. S., Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, &c. &c.

This work contains the opinions and practice of the most experienced writers. British and Foreign, digested and wrought-up with the results of the author's experience. It also presents a diversified range of opinions, methods of cure. and authorities, and comprises the complications and modified states of disease which are even more frequently met with than those specific forms too often described by Nosolugists as constant and unvarying types, to which morbid actions, occurring under a great variety of circumstances, can never closely adhere. It contains also a full exposition of the general principles of pathology, a minute description of the organic lesions of the human body, and a detailed account of those states of disorder incidental to the sex, the different periods of life, and to particular climates, with the peculiarities resulting from temperament and habit of body. Each article is methodically divided and headed : and to each a copious Bibliography, with references, is added.
The above work will be issued in monthly parts, at fifty cents each. Part I. now ready.

Without claiming anything on the score of originality of thought, Dr. Stewart is entitled to the praise of having collected a large amount of that very kind of matter about which every one is solicitous to know something we know of no substitute for it, and therefore re-commend it strongly to our friends."— Boston Medical Journal.
