Excerpt from Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy, Nature, and Treatment, of Acute and Chronic Diseases
Dr. Armstrong's Lectures on the Practice of Physic need no recommendation to the medical student or practitioner. The principles they unfold were drawn from, or confirmed by, a zealous observance of the phenomena of disease, at the bedside of the patient: while few men ever possessed more eminently the rich and rare talent of communicating to the mind clear and impressive views of the topic on which he treated. Hence I was induced, during several courses, when attending the lectures of so justly celebrated a teacher, to take very copious notes of them, sedulously endeavouring to secure their substantial accuracy, and to retain, indeed, as far as was practicable, the exact phraseology employed by the lecturer. These are the notes referred to in the accompanying fac-simile. Two copies of them remained long in the possession of Dr. Armstrong, who assisted to render one of them more perfect by furnishing me with his own notes after each lecture, and has attested the fidelity of the Mss. by requesting the use of them, that they might be read to his pupils during his last illness.
The size of the volume prevents the insertion of some lectures on the Influence of Diet, Air, Temperature, &c., in preventing, producing; and curing disease, which formed part of Dr. Armstrong's course on Materia Medica and Therapeutics.
