In his preface to this work, the Editor states: "In order that physicians and students might have the benefit of an authoritative and up-to-date treatise on every medical subject, it seemed desirable to prepare a textbook of medicine in which each disease, or group of diseases, would be discussed by a writer particularly interested in that subject. This book represents an effort to carry out such a plan." The appearance of the third edition, six years after the first, indicates that the plan has been very successful, and examination of the book reveals the causes of its popularity.
