With 692 Illustrations. THIRD AMERICAN, FROM THE SIXTH GERMAN EDITION. A Text-Book of Human Physiology, including Histology and Microscopical Anatomy,

with special reference to the requirements of Practical Medicine. By Dr. L. LANDOIS, Professor of Physiology and Director of the Physiological Institute, University of Greifswald. Translated from the Fifth German Edition, with additions by WM. STIRLING, M.D., Sc.D., Brackenbury, Professor of Physiology and Histology in Owen's College and Victoria University, Manchester ; Examiner in the Honors' School of Science, University of Oxford, England. Third Edition, revised and enlarged. 692 Illustrations.

One Volume. Royal Octavo. Cloth, $6.50; Leather, $7.50.


From the Prefaces to the English Edition. The fact that Prof. Landois' book has passed through four large editions in the original since 1880, and that in barely six months' time a second edition of the English has been called for, shows that in some special way it has met a want. The characteristic which has thus commended the work will be found I mainly to lie in its eminent practicability; and it is this consideration which has induced me to undertake the task of putting it into English. Landois' work, in fact, forms a Bridge between Physiology and the Practice of Medicine. It never loses sight of the fact that the student of to-day is the practicing physician of to-morrow. In the same way, the work offers to the busy physician in practice a ready means of refreshing his memory on the theoretical aspects of Medicine. He can pass backward from the examination of pathological phenomena to the normal processes, and, in the study of these, find new indications and new lights for the appreciation and treatment of the cases under consideration. With this object in view, all the methods of investigation which may, to advantage, be used by the practitioner, are carefully and fully described. Many additions, and about one hundred illustrations, have been introduced into this second English edition, and the whole work carefully revised.

PRESS NOTICES. Most effectively aids the busy physician to trace from morbid phenomena back the course of divergence from healthy physical operations, and to gather in this way new lights and novel indications for the COMPREHENSION AND TREATMENT of the maladies with which he is called upon to cope."- American Journal of Medical Sciences;

I know of no book which is its equal in the applications to the needs of clinical medicine.”—Prof. Harrison Allen, late Professor of Physiology, University of Pennsylvania.

“We have no hesitation in saying that this is the work to which the Practitioner will turn whenever he desires light thrown upon the phenomena of a COMPLICATED OR IMPORTANT Case.- Edinburgh Medical Journal.

So great are the advantages offered by Prof. LANDOIS' TEXT-Book, from the EXHAUSTIVE and EMINENTLY PRACTICAL manner in which the subject is treated, that it has passed through your large editions in the same number of years. Dr. STIRLING's annotations have materially added to the value of the work. Admirably adapted for the PractITIONER. With this Text-book at command, No STUDENT COULD FAIL IN HIS EXAMINATION."

"The Lancet. “One of the MOST PRACTICAL WORKs on Physiology ever written, forming a ‘bridge' between Physiology and Practical Medicine. ... Its chief merits are its completeness and conciseness. . . The additions by the Editor are able and judicious.

ExcellenTLY CLEAR, ATTRACTive and succinct.- British Medical Journal. The great subjects dealt with are treated in an admirably clear, terse, and happily illustrated manner.”—Practitioner.

Unquestionably the most admirable exposition of the relations of Human Physiology to Practical Medicine ever laid before English readers"-Students' Journal.

“ As a work of reference, Landois and STIRLING's Treatise ought to take the foremOST PLACE among the textbooks in the English language. The wood-cuts are noticeable for their number and beauty.”—Glasgow Medical Journal.

Landois' Physiology is, without question, the best text-book on the subject that has ever been written." -New York Medical Record.

.The chapter on the Brain and Spinal Cord will be a most valuable one for the general reader, the translator's notes adding not a little to its importance. The sections on Sight and Hearing are exhaustive. The Chemistry of the Urine is thoroughly considered. In its present form, the value of the original has been greatly increased. ... The text is smooth, accurate, and unusually free from Germanisms; in fact, it is good English.”—New York Medical Journal.

“ It is not for the physiological student alone that Prof. Landois' book possesses great value, for it HAS BEEN ADDRESSED TO THE PRACTITIONER of Medicine as well, who will find here a direct application of physiological to pathological processes." Medical Bulletin. P. BLAKISTON, SON & CO., Publishers, 1012 Walnut St., Philadelphia.

Medicine, University College, London, Physician to University College Hospital and to the National Hospital for Paralyzed and Epileptic, etc.

Published by special arrangement with the author, and containing all the material in the two volume English edition, with some corrections and additions. This is probably the most exhaustive book ever published on Nervous Diseases. The author's breadth of scope, systematic and interesting style, combine to make his work one of the most useful that has been published in any branch of medicine.

“The work, therefore, while serving to initiate the general reader in the elements of that science, ranks higher than a mere text-book on the subject. The author's object has been, in our opinion, skillfully and successfully carried out, and a perusal and study of this will place the student and practitioner in possession of all the leading and essential facts necessary to investigate and treat diseases of the nervous system according to the most recent improvements of our knowledge at the present day.British Medical Journal.

"It may be said, without reserve, that this work is the most clear, concise and complete text-book upon diseases of the nervous system in any language. And when the large number of such works which has appeared in Germany, France and England within the past ten years is considered, this implies high praise."-American Journal Medical Science, June, 1888.

“It would be invidious to praise one part more than another, where all is so good. Brevity and conciseness, combined with completeness and the most absolute clearness, are the characteristics of the work. Taken as a whole, it promises to be the most useful work on diseases of the nervous system which we possess.Dublin Journal of Medical Sciences.

“ The student and practitioner will find in it a true friend, guide and helper in his studies of the diseases of the nervous system. It is a most complete manual, presenting a thorough reflex of the present state of knowledge of the diseases of the nervous system. The care and thought that have been bestowed on its production are evident on every page. In the presence of such ability, learning and originality, criticism can only take a favorable direction. The style and manner are accurate, studied and adequate-never diffuse. The illustrations call for special notice. They are numerous, new and original. No better manual on nervous diseases has beer presented to the medical profession.”London Lancet.

“From a small beginning a great work has gradually been evolved. Less than ten years ago Gowers put out a very modest little book on the 'Diagnosis of Diseases of the Spinal Cord,' which was soon followed by an equally modest treatise on · Diseases of the Brain.' Two years ago the first half of this manual appeared, comprising Diseases of the Spinal Cord and Nerves, and now this manual of Diseases of the entire Nervous System is placed before us. Gowers' manual is herewith recommended to the general and to the special student. It is not too detailed for the former, while for the specialist it is explicit enough as a first-class book of reference. It is, on the whole, an admirable treatise.”—Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases, New York, May, 1888.

The contents is so vast as to make it impossible, in a review, to enumerate the subjects handled by the author, far less to attempt an analysis and discussion of the views held by him on the numerous problems with which he has to deal. We shall limit ourselves, therefore, almost entirely to a statement of the leading features of this manual, that characterize it as one of the very best published in any language. * * What we admire, first, is the clearness of thought and language in the exposition, even in the most difficult portions of the subject. It is not every one who, being a master, is at the same time a skillful expounder, and knows how to elucidate, whilst condensing, his theme. Secondly, we find the evidence on every page of the book of the author's individual familiarity with the topics he is discussing. * * Finally, we note the thorough masdery of the author of the most recent researches.”Brain, London, 1888.
