We have the pleasure of presenting the following notice of Guizot's Gibbon, from the Committee of Selection, to he patrons of the Historical Family Library :

The great work of Gibbon embraces a long and interesting period of history, respecting which the English reader das few other sources of information. The vast amount of facts which it embodies, and their skillful exhibition, will lways render it a popular work.

This edition, with ample corrections, was first prepared in Paris, in 1812, hy M. Guizot, who has since so highly listinguished himself as a minister of state, and the head of one of the political parties in France.

Though this is a work of such acknowledged importance and merit, it has never yet appeared in an English dies, The translations of Guizoi's Notes and Correc'ions, by a person every way qualified for the task, has greatly epbanced the value of a work which, from its first appearance, has been regarded as a standard in English Historical Literature.

BY J. G. NORWOOD, M. D.

“ Among the American writers whose works have been freely put in requisition
for this work, may be mentioned-Doctors Rush, Chapman, Caldwell, Cook, Barton,
James, Dudley, Eberle, Short, Drake, Dewees, Yandell, Dunglison, and Curtwright.
Also to the libors of Cooper, Abernethy, Burns, Mackintosh, Armstrong, Johnson,
Thomas, and other English writers, who stand at the head of their profession in their
own country. The object, throughout the entire work, being to give the history,
characteristic, symptoms, progress, and termination of all common diseases, in as
correct, simple, and intelligible terms as possible, suited to the capacities of all who
ought, in any event, to undertake the treatment of a disease, in the termination of
which human life may be at stake.”

It is not intended to induce people to neglect medical assistance, and place too
great confidence in their own discrimination; but to enable families to make prompt
use of suitable remedies in sudden attacks of illness, and in case of accidents, when
the services of a physician cannot be immediately procured.

“To render this work more generally useful, however, as well as more acceptable
to the intelligent part of mankind, I have, in most diseases, besides regimen, recom-
mended some of the most simple and approved forms of medicine, and added such
cautions and directions as seemed necessary for their safe administration."- Ex-
tracts from Preface.

The treatment pursued by the generality of practitioners, and found most SUC-
CESSFUL, particularly in the DISEASES ENDEMIC TO THE SOUTH AND
WEST, has been detailed with much minuteness and great care. The following are
some of the subjects treated upon in this work:
