For the last twenty years, the writer has been delivering a course of lectures on the subjects involved in this production, but during that time he has not been able to find a satisfactory text on the legal phase of the subject for recommendation to medical students. The medical features have been thoroughly discussed by many writers. Whatever the merit of this effort in supplying the desideratum, it embodies a brief explanation of those phases of the subject which he found most interesting and instructive to the student. No effort has been made to exhaust the subject but rather to abridge and condense wherever possible without sacrifice to completeness of exposition and accuracy in elucidation of fundamental principles.
Liberal reference has been made to the authorities sustaining or justifying the propositions set forth and, while seldom quoting from decisions, the writer, wherever expedient and appropriate, has not hesitated to adopt the language of the courts in announcing and illustrating principles. References on important subjects are made to annotated cases where the student will find fuller illustrations of the application of the law to facts in adjudicated cases, the reference to L.R.A. being to the new series unless otherwise indicated, and to American and English Annotated Cases, being as A.C.
Medical subjects are not discussed except where considered necessary to an exposition of the legal subjects or to illustrate the application of the legal principles announced.
