Abstract:

"In April 1836 this work appeared in a less extended form, in competition with many others, for the prize proposed by the Professor of Military Surgery, in the University of Edinburgh, in April 1835, to the author of the best essay 'On the best Classification of the Feigned and Factitious Diseases of Soldiers, and Seamen, on the Means used to simulate or produce them, and on the best modes of detecting Impostors.' This essay serves either to prevent the honourable physician from being made they dupe of the artful impostor, or guard him against judging too harshly in doubtful cases, and unjustly punishing the innocent; more especially, from being himself the instrument of punishment in presumed cases of malingering"--Preface.
