Excerpt from Practical Manual of Diseases of Women and Uterine Therapeutics: For Students and Practitioners

When, some months since, the publishers of this work invited me to write a Manual on Diseases of Women, for the use of students and practitioners, I accepted the task with grave misgivings of the possibility of writing any comparatively small book which would do justice to this important subject. Yet many years of experience, both as a clinical teacher and lecturer on obstetrics, had taught me that students rarely mastered the more comprehensive gynecological treatises, which I was myself in the habit of recommending to my class: such, for instance, as those of Dr. Gaillard Thomas, Dr. Robert Barnes, Dr. Emmet, Dr. Karl Schroeder, etc. The course of obstetrics and gynecology, embracing both practical midwifery and the study of the diseases of women, is a most extensive one. How inadequate is the time at the disposal of a lecturer to complete a satisfactory course even of obstetrics in one winter session, is known only to those teachers who have had experience of the effort to do so. The obstetric course is not generally attended until the third or fourth winter session.
