HOW TO DIAGNOSE SMALLPOX

With in Illustrations. Demy 8vo, 38. 6d. net.

SMITH, ELDER & CO., 15, WATERLOO PLACE, LONDON, S.W.

“The diagnosis of this disease is one of the most important and responsible duties which devolve upon the medical officer of health ; upon the accuracy with which the question is determined whether a particular person is or is not suffering from smallpox may depend the existence of a widespread prevalence of the disease, involving loss of life and a great expense to the community.

“It is therefore with much pleasure that we welcome the publication entitled “How to Diagnose Smallpox,' from the pen of Dr. W. McC. Wanklyn, whose experience of this disease is a very exceptional one.”

-Public Health. “This is a book which well fulfils its author's aim. Delay in the recognition of smallpox is an important factor in its spread, and this book will be of great assistance in its earlier recognition. The principle diagnostic points are well set out, the whole book is obviously based on an extremely wide experience of smallpox and all the ills that have been mistaken for it, from scabies to appendicitis. . It is written in a clear, pleasant style, and robs a thorny subject of practically all its terrors. Because of its very practical manner, and of the experience which underlies every page, we cordially recommend this book to all who feel at any time assistance in making the serious diagnosis for or against smallpox."

-London Hospital Gazette. “An excellent clinical lecture. In fact Chapters IV, V and VI are written in the question and answer form, so reminiscent of Byrom Bramwell's duckpond. ... It should be perused by every practitioner."

- Medical Officer. “Really practical books written practically by men of experience who know exactly the points to lay stress upon are, unfortunately, rare. This, however, is one of them. Short, extending only to just over 100 pages, it is practical from cover to cover, and each one of the ten chapters contains a number of hints which, if understood and taken, will assist any one who comes in contact with a case of smallpox in carrying out an examination and arriving at a diagnosis. This book is one to be recommended. It is small, simply and pleasantly written, and cheap."-Sanitary Record.

“The writer is well qualified for his task, as his experience extends over twenty years and includes the London epidemic of 1901-2, in which he had to revise the diagnosis of some 10,000 cases ... we can heartily recommend the book. Dr. Wanklyn possess the gift of exposition, and writes with the authority . . . that his long experience justifies."

-British Journal of Children's Diseases.

“Dr. Wanklyn's book has been published at a very opportune moment. The author has had a very large experience in the diagnosis of this disease, and is well able to lay down golden rules for the guidance of the general medical practitioner and the post-graduate student. . . . Dr. Wanklyn, by his original and chatty style, brings out every point of importance with great clearness the book, from its eminently practical character, should certainly be read by all those who have to deal with smallpox and allied diseases."— Universal Medical Record.

“The Author sets out to prove the contention that smallpox is, perhaps, of all diseases that in which a certain diagnosis can be arrived at in almost every case, and is sufficiently lucid and emphatic to succeed in giving the reader greater confidence in his own competency to deal with possible cases. The book, which is the outcome of twenty years' experience of smallpox, is well ranged and illustrated.”—Guy's Hospital Gazette.

" Readers will find the style clear and easy, and the subject is dealt with in a practical manner. The traps and difficulties which are likely to be encountered in the diagnosis of the disease are pointed out, and directions for avoiding them are set forth. . . . The original manner in which the subject has been approached has been much appreciated by a reviewer inured to the more conventional method of writing."-Middlesex Hospital Journal.

“An important practical contribution to the clinical study of smallpox. . . After carefully reading the volume we can say without hesitation that the author has been singularly successful in carrying out his aim. Though the volume is primarily intended for general practitioners and post-graduate students, it ought to appeal to a wide circle of readers. It is very well written, and a valuable feature is the inclusion of numerous illustrative clinical histories. We have pleasure in bringing the volume before the notice of our readers, and we advise each one to secure a copy and carefully study its pages.”The Prescriber.
