REVISED, AND IN PART RE-WRITTEN, BY THE AUTHOR,

AND BY

JOHN CHARLES STEELE, M.D.,

OF Guy's HOSPITAL.

With Appendix on the Management of the Sick-room, and many Hints for the

Diet and Comfort of Invalids.

In its New Form, DR. SPENCER THOMSON'S “DICTIONARY OF DOMESTIC MEDICINE” fully sustains its reputation as the “Representative Book of the Medical Knowledge and Practice of the Day” applied to Domestic Requirements.

The most recent IMPROVEMENTS in the TREATMENT OF THE SICK-in APPLIANCES for the RELIEF OF PAIN-and in all matters connected with SANITATION, HYGIENE, and the MAINTENANCE of the GENERAL HEALTH—will be found in the New Issue in clear and full detail ; the experience of the Editors in the Spheres of Private Practice and of Hospital Treatment respectively, combining to render the Dictionary perhaps the most thoroughly practical work of the kind in the English Language. Many new Engravings have been introduced-improved Diagrams of different parts of the Human Body, and Illustrations of the newest Medical, Surgical, and Sanitary Apparatus.

All Directions given in such a form as to be readily and safely followed.

FROM THE AUTHOR'S PREFATORY ADDRESS. “Without entering upon that difficult ground which correct professional knowledge and educated judge ment can alone permit to be safely trodden, there is a wide and extensive field for exertion, and for usefulness, open to the unprofessional, in the kindly offices of a true DOMESTIC MEDICINE, the timely help and solace of a simple HOUSEHOLD SURGERY, or, better still, in the watchful care more generally known as

SANITARY PRECAUTION,' which tends rather to preserve health than to cure disease. 'The touch of a gentle hand will not be less gentle because guided by knowledge, nor will the safe domestic remedies be less anxiously or carefully administered. Life may be saved, suffering may always be alleviated. Even to the resident in the midst of civilization, the ‘KNOWLEDGE IS POWER,' to do good ; to the settler and emigrant it is INVALUABLE."

“Dr. Thomson has fully succeeded in conveying to the public a vast amount of useful professional knowledge."-Dublin Journal of Medical Science.

“The amount of useful knowledge conveyed in this work is surprising." —Medical Times and Gazette. WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD TO FAMILIES AND THE CLERGY.”—Oxford Herald.
