TO THE STEREOTYPE
All the matter of the previous edition has been retained, though considerably condensed, in this, except that which appertains to the influence of the various states of the mother's physiology and mentality on offspring, or the BEARING of children, which has been reserved for the author's work on this subject, entitled
Maternity, or infantile carriage, delivery, and management”-a work which every prospective mother should peruse.
Large additions of Facts have been made to every portion of the work, many new principles, amply illustrated with numerous cases, introduced, many valuable transpositions effected, and the entire work every way improved. Indeed, much more labor has been bestowed upon the revised than upon the first edition, partly in order to obviate some of the defects of the former, and partly to deserve a continuance of the favor with which that was received, but mainly in consequence of the INTRINSIC MOMENT OF THE SUBJECT TREATED.
