Excerpt from A Manual of Dermatology

This volume is intended to be the basis of a future much larger, more pretentious, and more original work. In its present form an effort has been made, not so much to write a distinctively original work, as to present - in as concise a manner as possible - the subject of Dermatology in its modern aspect.

The original intention was to give a concise and yet complete description of the symptoms, histology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of the different diseases, in a work of about three hundred to three hundred and fifty pages; but it was found that that was impossible, if any justice was to be done to the subject. Even with the present size I have had to curtail the matter much beyond my desire, and consequently the histology and treatment are in many cases not so complete as they might be.

Although I have done a great amount of work during the last ten years on the histology of the lesions of many of the skin-diseases, as may be perceived by a glance at the number of original drawings accompanying the text, yet, on account of the limited space at my disposal, I have not been able, as a rule, to give more than a brief description of the result of these studies. At some future time I expect to do this part of the subject much more justice.

As regards the treatment of the different diseases, much more could have been written, and the mode of application of many of the local measures recommended rendered more intelligible, perhaps, by a more lengthened description of the exact manner in which they are to be employed; but not only would space not permit, but, furthermore, I believe that for the intelligent, thinking physician, a statement of principles and indications is of much more service than a long list of formulæ.
