PREFACE

TO THE

ELEVENTH AMERICAN EDITION.

This edition is an entire revision of all prior American and London editions, and includes the admirable work with which Dr. STEVENSON has enriched the Twelfth English edition.

Much new matter has been added, many portions of the work have been amended, and some parts have been re-written. In making additions upon legal questions and the present state of the law bearing on Medico-legal matters the Editor has carefully cited nearly 700 cases and authorities to aid counsel in preparing briefs, and to extend the sources of information for Medico-Legal Jurists.

The Editor is under many obligations to Doctors John J. REESE and HENRY HARTSHORNE, and to Mr. C. B. PENROSE for their labors upon previous American editions, which have been utilized as far as practicable; and to many friends, members of both the Medical and the Legal Professions, for valuable suggestions and aid.
