This New Edition of the Domestic Medicine, comes before the public with fresh claims upon their attention. It has undergone a thorough revision, with considerable additions and improvements. The little obsolete or irrelevant matter, scattered here and there in the preceding edition, has been expunged, and its place supplied with information of a more useful and more recent nature, which it was deemed essentially necessary not to omit, in order that a book so familiar to all ranks of society, might keep pace with the various improvements and opinions which have taken place of late years in medical science.
