Summary:
"The terms found in this work are the ones seen as the most common causes of death in eighteenth and nineteenth century Europe and America. Almost all of these causes of death are diseases. Terms such as 'died in a fire,' 'murdered,' or 'fell into the river,' need no further explanation. The diseases that killed our ancestors do need explanations as we are usually not very familiar with them any longer.
