Digestion requires a free tiow of healthy bile. to insure which Holloway's Pills and Ointment have long been famous for eclipsing every other medicine. Food, irregularity of living, climates, and other causes are constantly throwing the liver into disorder bat that important organ can, under all circumstances, soon be regulated disectly upon its vital secretion. The Ointment, rubbed on the skin, penetrates immediately to the liver, whose blood and serves it rectifies. One trial is all that is needed; a cure will soon follow.

Preface to Second Edition. The First Edition of this work having been exhausted in a space of little over three months, I take this opportunity of saying that the critical notices which have hitherto appeared do not render it necessary to make any substantial changes in the text. A few points of difference between my reviewers and myself, concerning opinion rather than facts, are briefly discussed in a series of notes printed at the end of Volume II.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.-NEW WORK ON BRITISH FERNS.
A COMPLETE AND EXHAUSTIVE WORK UP TO THE PRESENT TIME.
By E. J. LOWE, F.R.S. F.L.S., &c. NOTE.- For easy reference this work will be alphabetically arranged, and this enables the whole of the varieties of the prolific species to be included in one volume; thus the Athyriums will be in Vol. I., the Lastreas in Vol. II., the Polysticbums in Vol. III., and the Scolopendriums in Vol. IV.
It is twenty-five years since an exhaustive work has been written on British ferns, and so many new varieties have been found wild or raised that a new work on this subject is absolutely requisite.
