PREFACE.

000000000

In offering the interesting work of Dr. Larrey to the American publick in an English dress, the translator flatters himself he will contribute to the gratification of the general reader, while he lays before his brethren of the profession of physick such a variety of important facts and observations in the several departments of the science, as cannot fail to be acceptable. Few individuals in any age or country have been furnished with such extensive opportunities of acquiring a practical knowledge of military surgery as this author enjoyed, during the numerous and active campaigns of the French armies, in Asia,

Africa, and Europe, from the year 1792 till í 1812.

In several parts of the work minute topographical descriptions and unimportant de. tails have been omitted, while particular care has been taken to retain whatever was calculated to administer to the pleasure or instruction of the American reader.
