THIS book has been written for the purpose of providing the practitioner and senior student with a short and practical account of the diseases of the nervous system, and is not expected to take the place of the larger works on the same branch of medicine. Owing to the limitation placed upon the size of the book, the description of certain disorders, such as myxoedema and acromegaly, usually contained in works of this description, has been omitted. This we cannot but regard as an advantage, for there seems no scientific reason why diseases of ductless glands should be catalogued with diseases of the nervous system.
