"The want of a new and complete system of physiology has been long and very sensibly experienced and regretted by all medical students on this side the Atlantic. As to myself, I am sure I was led most devoutly to regret such a want, throughout every stage of my medical studies. In order to acquire a knowledge of the improvements which had lately taken place in this important branch of physical science, I was obliged to range with an infinitude of labour and attention, through daily accumulating volumes, which it was sometimes extremely difficult to procure. This difficulty was augmented even to impossibility itself with those unfortunately living out of the sphere of public libraries. The mutilated abridgment of Haller's physiology, published in the English language, is (to life a common mode of expression) certainly nothing more than a bare apology for a system. It is imperfect, erroneous, and, in many places, to me wholly unintelligible. In some parts, therefore, it no doubt inculcates truth, in others implants the seeds of error, and in other places again leaves the young mind at liberty to indulge itself in all the wildness and revelry of conjecture. For these deficiencies and faults, I am sure that at least some compensation is made, and some degree of remedy provided in the following sheets, which I am about to usher forth to the world"--Préf.

"To deliver a System of the Doctrines and Rules proper for directing the Practice of Physic, is an undertaking that appears to me to be attended with great difficulty; and after an experience of more than forty years in that practice, as well as after much reading and reflection, it was with great diffidence that I ever entered upon such a work. I offer some remarks on the principal Systems of Medicine which have of late prevailed in Europe, and that I take notice of the present state of Physic as it is influenced by these. In the following treatise I have endeavoured to collect the facts relative to the diseases of the human body, as fully as the nature of the work and the bounds necessarily prescribed to it would admit. Upon this general plan I have endeavoured to form a system of physic that should comprehend the whole of the facts relating to the science, and that will, I hope, collect and arrange them in better order than has been done before, as well as point out in particular those which are still wanting to establish general principles"--Preface.
