Description

Drawn from the fifth and sixth English editions, this translation of Osler’s textbook by medical missionary Dr. Philip B. Cousland (1861-1930) is the first issue of the first Chinese edition; copies of a second (1921) and third (1925) edition are also in the Osler Collection. In his preface, Cousland states that, “Diseases rare or unknown in China have been dealt with somewhat tersely, while others have been taken in whole or in part from Sir Patrick Manson’s Tropical diseases. The geographical distribution and incidence in China have been given as far as could be ascertained…. Such matter as is only appropriate to the West has been omitted…. The Publication Committee is under special obligation to Prof. Osler for his hearty concurrence in this endeavor to give his book to the Chinese in their own language.”
