These chapters record medical history, and the suc- cessive medical schools and sects ; also the medical improvements along the ages, excepting the present,—these being the gleanings of special studies in medical history. The work is addressed to the profession, especially the younger portion of it, and to an intelligent public, in plain language for all readers. Many a beautiful and cor- recting thought, many a wise and helpful suggestion come down to us through these quaint old stories. They help us to eliminate myth and fallacy from the true, and show us scientific knowledge. Here are traced the rise and progress of the great medical profession, the old and new healing art ; also the new phase of a very old-fashioned medical " school," each inspected anew, by routes not usually taken, so that important facts that should be familiar to every one may be readily understood by any and all.
