THE SECOND EDITION,
CORRECTED AND GREATLY ENLARGED,
PRINTED FOR C. AND R. BALDWIN, NEW BRIDGE-STREET;
AND J. MURRAY, 32, FLEET-SEREET,
THE Author of the following pages having devoted himself exclusively and assiduously, for a series of years, to the care and cure of maniacal patients, in an establishment where persons of both sexes are received, has had ample opportunity of comparing the effects produced by different modes of treatment, and flatters himself he has advanced some steps towards improvement in this particular department of medical practice.
Although the hints contained in these pages are derived from diligent observation, and an uninterrupted experience of many years, yet they are offered with a degree of diffidence which, it is hoped, will procure them a correspondent degree of candor and indulgence from the Public. The observations are accompanie dwith cases : these, while they seem to illustrate the different modes of treatment adopted in different forms of insanity, will, it is presumed, be found to exhibit many striking and important facts connected with the history of mental derange. ment.
