Revifedawd adapted to the Climate and Diseases oftfhe

By Samuel Powell Griffits, M. D.
Profeflor of Materia Mcdica the University of
In one very large volume octavo.
(Price two dollars and a half.)
The merit of Dr. Buchan 3 s Domestic medicine is
too well known to need any ; indeed the
very extensive sale of the original work speaks its
worth abundantly. But however well calculated for
the climate of Britain, for which it was originally de
signed, it is obvious that it was not fnfliciently adapted
to the climate and diseases of America.
The design of this improved edition was to remedy
this deficiency, and to render this valuable and popu
lar work more intelligible and more ufefulto the citi
zens of the United States, and the improvements
being the result ®f experience and observation, it is
hoped will render this work more truly valuable and
ufcful. Dec. 17. m&th6w
