BY THE SAME A U T H O R.
A TRE ATIS E
CHRONIC INFLAMMATION AND DISPLACEMENTS
In One Volume Octavo. Price $2.00.
This work has been prepared to fill a vacuum which seems to exist in American me. dical literature. The uterus is so frequently diseased that the younger members of the medical profession are called upon, immediately upon entering practice, to prescribe for it; and both they and their elder brethren frequently find themselves in want of more definite information than is generally found in treatises on the diseases of women, Prof. Byford's volume, it is hoped, will supply this want, and prove acceptable to the medical profession.
From G. S. BEDFORD, M.D., Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children in the
University of New York. " On my return to the city, I found on my table · Byford on the Uterus.' The next day I commenced perusing it, and have read it from cover to cover. I need not say that, in my judgment, the book enhances your deserved reputation. You have, if my opinion be worth anything, given the profession an excellent work, and one that is sensible and practical. Go on, my dear Doctor, and give us more of your experience. It is what the profession most needs—the experience of good and ripe minds."
From FORDYCE BARKER, M.D., Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children in
Bellevue Hospital Medical College. "Some weeks ago I received a copy of your work on the Uterus. I have delayed acknowledging the favor, until I could give the book a careful perusal. I have just finished it-I mean a thorough reading of it. I feel personally indebted to you, not merely for the copy, which, of course, I should have bought, but for writing the book ; and I think you have laid the profession in this country under a load of obligation by giving them such a clear, concise, and practical treatise on a class of affections that even now is very little understood by the greater majority.”
From R. A. F. PENROSE, M.D., Professor of Obstetrics in the University of Pennsylvania. “I find, on my return to Philadelphia, the copy of your new work which you have so kindly sent me. . Accept my thanks for the favor. I have as yet not bad time to give it the careful study it merits; but, from the superficial inspection I have made, I find much that is most valuable."

IN presenting the following work on the Medical and Surgical Treatment of the Diseases and Accidents incident to Women, it has been the object of the author to furnish the student and junior members of the profession a concise, yet sufficiently complete, practical, and reliable treatise to meet their wants in everyday practice. Whether this object has been accomplished will be determined by its success alone, and for the verdict thus indicated the author respectfully and hopefully dedicates it to his young friends.
