Some years have now passed, since Lobstein addressed the profession in the following words:—" We must more than ever prosecute the study of the anatomical alterations, which even the most tender age presents, for here, every day reveals novelties and things hitherto unperceived, every day is marked by discoveries in the anatomical history of disease. Who would have said that man, even before his birth, is subject to numerous organic affections? Who, some time ago, would have thought that there

exists a pathology of the foetus, just as there is one of the adult? Who would believe that the short space of the life of the former is characterized by as many organic diseases, as is the course run through by man after his birth? The comparative study of the maladies of these two periods will be fruitful in novel and interesting results." So thought Dr. Graetzer, of Breslau, who, fifteen years ago, undertook a systematic treatise* on the diseases, &c. of intra-uterine life, and now Dr. Weber extends the field of inquiry to a sort of transition-period between the latter portion of intra-, and the first portion of extra-uterine existence. It would be untrue, and evince great ignorance on our part, to affirm, that a considerable amount was added to our knowledge by Dr. Graetzer's personal observations; on the contrary, his work is mainly a compilation of the diffusely scattered records of many previous investigators; but it still, so far at least as we are aware, constitutes the chief systematic treatise on the subject, and remains to this day the best book to refer to for information up to the period when it was produced. Nevertheless, it should be borne in mind, that several inaugural dissertations (the first, we believe, being the thesis of Duettel, 1702), papers*tracts, &c, had previously been published on diseases, &c. of the foetus; and Graetzer derived also no small amount of information for his work from dictionaries of medicine, works on the general diseases of children, and on obstetrics, which touched upon his own ground. These remarks apply, also, to the treatise of Dr. Weber, so far as they relate to the fact of the field he occupies having been trodden by other labourers; but the author stands alone in this; that his work is a systematic one, limited to the transition-period before remarked upon, and quite independent of the writings of other pathologists, since he details the results of his own investigations only. Of course the work of Graetzer includes subjects discussed by Dr. Weber, and that of Dr. Bednar is occupied with many of them too; but the former (Graetzer) includes a period antecedent, and Bednar ventures upon one subsequent, to the dates to which Dr. Weber is limited, and neither are anything like so complete in their information as is our present author, within his own and special bounds. Our readers need scarcely be reminded, that the continental writers, in their general works on the diseases of infancy and childhood, have also given much increase to our knowledge; but we may direct their attention in a note to those writers by whom the nearest approach has
