"In approaching the revision of 'Huxley's Physiology,' my feelings have been similar to those of an architect to whom is entrusted the restoration of a historic building designed by a master hand. Written by Huxley, the book was revised, and in fact almost rewritten, by Foster. The former was as great a writer as any scientist of his time, the latter may almost be said to have created English Physiology. To 'restore' the work of these men from the dilapidations made by two decades of scientific progress is the task now entrusted to me. The sense of responsibility with which I approach it is, if possible, heightened by the affection which I have for the memory of Foster, who was my master. I have faithfully left untouched any portion of the fabric in which there was not an actual flaw; but where the structure needed repair, it seemed to me due not only to the readers of the book but to the memory of the author, that the repair should be thorough, substantial, and simple. Such have been the principles on which I have tried to carry out my work"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)
