American, from the Sixth London Edition. Thoroughly Revised,
Remodelled, many portions Rewritten, with Additions almost equal to
a Third Volume, and numerous additional Illustrations, without any
increase in bulk or price. Containing a Colored Map showing the
Geographical Distribution of Disease over the Globe, a Lithographic
Plate, and nearly 200 Illustrations on Wood.
Two volumes, royal octavo, bound in cloth, price,

$12.00 leather

14.00 For eighteen months Dr. Aitken has been engaged in again carefully revising this Great Work, and adding to it many valuable additions and improvements, amounting in the aggregate almost to a volume of new matter, included in which will be found the adoption and incorporation in the text of the “ New Nomenclature of the Royal College of Physicians of London;" to which are added the Definitions and the Foreign Equivalents for their English names; the New Classification of Disease as adopted by the Royal College of Physicians, &c.

The American editor, MEREDITH CLYMER, M. D., has also added to it many valuable articles, with special reference to the wants of the AMERICAN PRACTITIONER.

The work is now, by almost universal consent, both in England and the United States, acknowledged to be in advance of all other works on The Science and Practice of Medicine. It is a most thorough and complete TEXT-BOOK for students of medicine, following such a systematic arrangement as will give them a consistent view of the main facts, doctrines, and practice of medicine, in accordance with accurate physiological and pathological principles and the present state of science. For the practitioner it will be found equally acceptable as a work of reference.

URE, PROLAPSUS, and other Diseases of the Rectum, their Diagnosis and Treatment. Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged by the Author. Price

$2.00 This book has been well received by the Profession; the first edition sold rapidly; the present one has been revised by the author, and some additions made, chiefly as to the mode of treatment.

The Medical Press and Circular, speaking of it, says: “No book on this special subject can at all approach Mr. Allingham's in precision, clearness, and practical good sense.”

The London Lancet : “As a practical guide to the treatment of affections of the lower bowel, this book is worthy of all commendation."

The Edinburgh Monthly:“We cordially recommend it as well deserving the careful study of Physicians and Surgeons.”
