A Treatise On The Materia Medica And Therapeutics Of The Skin | by Henry G. Piffard



The following pages have been the outgrowth of the author's own requirements, as he early became satisfied that a knowledge of the experience of the past should be the foundation on which to begin the study of the present. This conviction led to the collection of the material that forms the first part of this book. Believing that the information thus obtained would prove as useful to others as it has to himself, it is here offered in a form that will permit of ready reference. Long before the collection assumed its present bulk, the author was surprised at the number of drugs, that, on the testimony of observers, appeared to exert an influence on the skin. He did not feel warranted, however, in greatly curtailing the list, except En instances where sufficient experience appeared to throw very grave doubt on the accuracy of the recorded observations.
