HOUSE I LIVE IN;
THE HUMAN BODY.
FOR THE USE OF FAMILIES AND SCHOOLS.
BY WM. A. ALCOTT,
and Young Man's Guide.
Sirth Stercotype Edition.
GEORGE W. LIGHT, 1 CORNHILL.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1837, by
Wm. A. Alcott, in the Clerk's Office of the Distriet Court of Massachusetts.
This work has now been revised, probably for the last time. Its author will not probably ever be able—from the nature of the case to render it much more perfect. In the present revised edition, he has freely availed himself of the suggestions of Mr. Girtin, a British surgeon, who has recently prepared an edition of the work for the children of both sexes in the schools of England ;—some of whose improvements are truly valuable.
He has also profited, as he trusts, from the suggestions of several medical gentlemen on this side of the Atlantic.
