Página 614 - HOFMANN'S MODERN CHEMISTRY. Experimental and Theoretic. Small 8vo, 4s. 6d. " It is in the truest sense an introduction to chemistry; and as such it possesses the highest value— a value which is equally great to the student, new to the science, and to the lecturer who has spent years in teaching it.
Página 50 - The victim goes to bed and sleeps in good health. About two o'clock in the morning he is awakened by a severe pain in the great toe; more rarely in the heel, ankle, or instep. This pain is like that of a dislocation, and yet the parts feel as if cold water were poured over them. Then follow chills and shivers, and a little fever. The pain, which was at first moderate, becomes more intense. With its intensity the chills and shivers increase.
Página 52 - As the fit goes off, the foot itches intolerably, most between the toes; the cuticle scales off, and the feet desquamate, as if venomed. The disease being disposed of, the vigour and appetite of the patient return, and this in proportion to the violence of the last fits.

Página 50 - Now it is a violent stretching and tearing of the ligaments — now it is a gnawing pain, and now a pressure and tightening. So exquisite and lively meanwhile is the feeling of the part affected, that it cannot bear the weight of the bedclothes nor the jar of a person walking in the room.
Página 2 - For humble individuals like myself, there is one poor comfort, which is this, viz., that gout, unlike any other disease, kills more rich men than poor, more wise men than simple. Great kings, emperors, generals, admirals, and philosophers have all died of gout. Hereby Nature shows her impartiality, since those whom she favours in one way she afflicts in another.
Página 51 - Next day (perhaps for the next two or three days), if the generation of the gouty matter have been abundant, the part affected is painful, getting worse towards evening and better towards morning. A few days after, the other foot swells, and suffers the same pains. The pain in the latter regulates the state of the one first attacked, for the more acutely it is tortured the more perfect is the abatement of suffering and the return of strength in the other. Nevertheless, there is a repetition in the...
