PREFACE.

My

THE greater part of the following remarks constituted the Goulstonian Lectures for 1873. object has been to collect from various sources a short account of the past and present history of Leprosy, and to combine with this my conclusions regarding the causes, nature, and clinical features of the disease, drawn from the facts recorded and from my own observation on several cases under my care. During a visit to Norway, in the year 1871, I had ample opportunity of observing the external circumstances under which the disease is developed; and some observations on this part of the subject will be found in the following pages. I take this opportunity of thanking my friends Drs. DUFFIN and CREIGHTON for the assistance they have given me, especially in translating German works on the subject.

11 MANCHESTER SQUARE:
