Abstract

The precision and accuracy of modern medicine in its practical applications have become such that few text books on systems accurately represent its present position. "Such considerations," says Dr. Thompson, "render obvious the necessity for a systematic and practical work covering the entire field of general and specific medicine in its foremost state of development. To meet this want the late Dr. Alfred Lee Loomis, M.D., LL.D., undertook the authorship" and associated Dr. Thompson with him in its charge. By omitting topics on hygiene, bacteriology, gynecology, et cetera, it "has been found possible to present a succinct and complete account of medical practice in its latest aspects, each article being a clinical monograph and proceeding from the cause and nature of a disease to its diagnosis, prognosis and treatment." In the preparation of the work, the late Professor Loomis "secured the authors, apportioned their subjects, decided the arrangement and classification
