A Treatise on mental diseases
"The absence from English medical literature of a comprehensive, practical work on mental diseases--one adapted to the needs of the busy practitioner as well as to those of the student of psychiatry--has led the writer to prepare this treatise embodying a consideration of all the principal forms of psychical disturbance. Although it is evident, from the intrinsic nature of the subject, that such an attempt can be only partially successful, it is to be hoped that the book will add something to the certain knowledge of the practitioner, and render more accessible what has been heretofore almost an unknown territory of medicine"--Preface.

Page 597 - ... Manges, has done his work in a thoroughly creditable manner. His numerous notes, additions, and new illustrations have made the book a classic one.

There is no doubt that more properly directed efforts in the proper direction, as...
