The first part of this work is devoted to a series of articles on inflammation that the author had published in the Medical repository and London medical and surgical journal in 1828." [Heirs of Hippocrates]. "One of Christison's purposes in writing this treatise was to more fully acquaint the medical community with the importance of Bright's work on the kidney. Christison was very conscious of the value of Bright's contributions and felt that the incidence of kidney degeneration in dropsy was so high that it should be made widely known to medical practitioners. The book was first published at Edinburgh in 1839 and is here appearing as part of Dunglison's American medical library." [Heirs of Hippocrates].
