A PARAGRAPH in the preface to this new edition of Prof. Clifford Allbutt's great “System of Medicine “sufficiently explains the necessity for a revision. The editors (for Dr. H. D. Rolleston is now associated with Prof. Allbutt in this capacity) point out that “the life of a text-book of medicine is comparatively short, and that it is desirable that a new edition should appear before the first has ceased to represent accurately the present positions of medical knowledge."With this object it is intended to revise and bring out every year a new volume corresponding to one of the first edition.
