The first edition, by Dr. Joslin alone, appeared in 1916. This, the tenth edition of this celebrated volume, represents the condensation of the clinical experience of Dr. Joslin over two generations, and of his associates over a lesser period. Their experience derives from their personal observations and follow-up studies of almost 53,000 glycosuric patients, of whom about 43,000 had true diabetes mellitus. Among these 43,000 about 18,000 fatalities have been recorded, and among the surviving patients were 82 who had diabetes mellitus for 25 years without detectable evidence of those complications attributable to poor control of their disease.
