T. S. CLOUSTON, M.D. EDIN., F.R.C.P.E.,
AND OF THE NEW ENGLAND PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY.
TO WHICH IS ADDED
ABSTRACT OF THE STATUTES OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF
TO THE CUSTODY OF THE INSANE.
CHARLES F. FOLSOM, M.D.,
DISEASES OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, BOSTON CITY HOSPITAL.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1884, by
HENRY C. LEA'S SON & Co., in the Office of the Librarian of Congress. All rights reserved.
The present work has been so favorably received in England that it is only necessary to state that the sheets of the American edition, in their passage through the press, have had the supervision of Dr. Charles F. Folsom, of Boston. To render the work complete as regards the wants of the American practitioner, Dr. Folsom, with the assistance of Hollis R. Bailey, Esq., has added an appendix on the laws of the United States, and of the several States, relating to the custody of the insane. Practice on this point varies so much with local statutes and decisions that an abstract of this kind would seem to be requisite as a guide for the practitioner in the perplexing cases which are liable to arise in his practice at any moment. With this addition it is hoped that the volume will be found satisfactory in all essential points.
PHILADELPHIA, April, 1884.
