Notes

First edition. "The following pages consist of lectures delivered during several sessions to the students attending the class of Mental Diseases in the Royal Colleges' School of Medicine, Edinburgh while it cannot be claimed that they are exhaustive in scope or complete in detail, the author hopes that his general views on the aetiology of insanity, on the interrelationship of the neuroses, the psychoses, and the diatheses, and on other cognate problems may be of suggestive value " (Preface). Ownership inscription of the noted physician Sir Clifford Allbutt (1836-1925), who was successively an extremely successful consulting physician in Leeds (1861-1889); a commissioner in lunacy in London (1889 -92); and for the remainder of his long life, Regius Professor of physic at Cambridge.
