This book is written with the object of supplying the student with directions for examining practically the most important of the subjects included under the heading Chemical Physiology, or Physiological Chemistry. At the same time it is intended to serve as an elementary text-book of the subject.
The plan of the work is the same as that adopted by Professor SCHÄFER, in his · Essentials of Histology.' The practical lessons are followed by a brief description of the matter of which they treat. Each of the elementary lessons may be supposed to occupy a class for one hour. The advanced lessons will take more time-usually two hours.
The practical lessons are those which I have been using for many years past in my own classes. Their original source is the 'Syllabus of Lectures.' published by Professor J. BURDON SANDERSON in 1879, and although some few of the lessons are but little altered, the greater number have been very considerably modified to include the results of recent researches.
The illustrations have for the most part been transferred from my text-book of Chemical Physiology and Pathology.' A few additional figures have been expressly drawn for this work. Figs. 4, 10, and 15 have been taken from Yeo's · Physiology’; figs. 16 and 17 from McKENDRICK'S 'Physiology'; figs. 51 and 52 from BRYANT'S'Surgery'; and figs. 73 and 74 from WALLER'S Physiology.'
