AVING now brought to a conclusion the first Volume

of the PHILADELPHIA MEDICAL MUSEUM, it is incumbent on the Editor to return his warmest acknowledgments to those Gentlemen who have so kindly patronized the undertaking

The value of a work of the present description, must evidently depend on the importance of the communications committed to the charge of the Editor ; and he may justly boast of the excellence of those specimens which the present Vow lume presents to the public. The addition of the Engravings, unpromised in the prospectus of the work, (whilst they add so greatly to its value, and are fo creditable to the improvement of the arts amongst us;) must be considered as a strong proof of the desire to render it of as much utility, at the most moderate expense, as lies in our power.

The Editor may be permitted to congratulate his Medical Brethren, on the flattering prospects which two additional periodical publications must necessarily produce in the science of medicine throughout the extensive regions of America. When it is considered that but a few years have elapsed since the first work of this kind was carried into effect, we cannot but regard it as highly characteristic of the increasing energy of our scientific researches.

The approbation which this work has already received, cannot but prove highly grateful to the Editor ; and, whilst he folicits a continuance of that aid he has already so largely shared; he can only say, that no exertions on his part will be wanting, to render the Medical Museum as extensively useful as possible. This, he trusts, he shall be able to effect, by the measures adopted to receive as soon as possible the earliest European publications connected with medicine, as well as by the experience he has now acquired, which he hopes will render this Work each year, more and more worthy the acceptance of the medical world.
