"If from timidity, or want of entire conviction of the propriety of undertaking to abridge M{FC}ller's great work on Physiology, it were deemed necessary to invoke the sanction of authority, the editor of the present volume might refer to one eminent teacher (Dr. Horner), who advised the measure, and to another (Dr. Jackson) who gave it his ready approval. The editor, himself, felt assured, from an experience of many years teaching Physiology, as part of and in connection with the Institutes of Medicine, that the work of M{FC}ller in its entireness, however admirably calculated it may be to furnish information to the writer and lecturer, is not adapted to the wants, nor can it come within the requirements of the student of medicine. It is a vast repertory of facts and opinions in physiological science, but it bewilders the inexperienced votary by its very extent; and he who has gone over it without halt or pause, or, indeed, at all, may well speak, as even the indefatigable German student himself is said to do, of his having performed a feat. In arranging the volume now offered to American readers, from the materials furnished in M{FC}ller's Elements of physiology, the editor has endeavoured to procure reduction in size of this latter, without any abstraction of its vitality and mind. With this view he has omitted, for the most part, mere disquisitions, many details of experiments, matters of physics and natural philosophy, including mechanics under the head of locomotion, acoustics and the theories of music under voice and hearing, and of optics under vision,{97}much of the minuti{aelig} of comparative physiology, and metaphysics or metaphysico-physiology. But, while excluding details on collateral topics, the editor has been particularly careful to preserve physiology proper, which, resting on the basis of histogeny and general anatomy, derives important aid from organic chemistry and microscopical observations, and, in its turn, serves to illustrate hygiene, pathology and therapeutics. Thus aided and thus applied, in the manner exhibited by M{FC}ller himself, physiology will invite the attention of the student in these pages. It will soon be discovered that, although this volume is an abridgement of the large work of M{FC}ller, it may rightfully claim to be considered a complete system of physiology, exceeding in copiousness and comprehensive details, any other work on the same subject, which has yet emanated from the London press"--Book.
