" The Philadelphia Medical Dictionary : containing a Concise Explanation of all 
the Terms used in Medicine, Surgery, Pharmacy, Botany, Natural History, Chymis- 
try, and Materia Medica. Compiled from the best authorities, by John Redman 
Coxe, M. D " 

In conformity to the act of the congress of the United States, intituled, " An act for 
the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books to 
the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned ;" and 
also to the act intituled " An act supplementary to an act, intituled, • An act for the 
encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books to the 
authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned,' and ex- 
tending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etching histo- 
rical and other prints." D. CALDWELL, 

Clerk of the District of Pennsylvania. 


1 HE basis of the present work is Dr. Fox's " New Medical Dic- 
tionary, revised and augmented by Dr. Bradley." Upon comparing 
it with other works of the same nature, it was perceived that large 
and valuable additions might be introduced, which had been over- 
looked by the Editor of Fox's Dictionary. Influenced, therefore, 
by the desire of uniting in this, the excellencies of the best and latest 
Medical Dictionaries, without their superfluities, the Editor has 
udded so greatly to the groundwork of the plan, that it may almost 
be viewed as a new publication. 

Far, however, from considering it as perfect, the Editor has daily 
become more sensible of those imperfections, which only time and 
patience can remove, but which were not to be attained in the pre- 
sent instance ; and he has only to hope that those amendments and 
-additions may yet be accomplished, should another edition of the 
work be called for. 

A great defect in this class of books, consists in their entering so 
largely into the theory and practice of physic, &c. which certainly is 
not naturally connected with the idea of a dictionary; for in a 
work, explanatory merely of medical terms, any further addition 
is superfluous, and adds greatly to the expence. A beginner 
will most likely consult a regular and approved history of any dis- 
ease, of which he is reading ; and one more advanced requires a 
dictionary, only to recal to his memory the explanation of some me- 
dical word. Hence the expensive folios of Motherby, James, and 
others, are incompatible with the convenience of most medical 
men, and certainly, from their unwieldy size, can never be made « 
table companion in their studies. 


The promiscuous mixture of the Latin and English, may, per- 
haps, be regarded as a fault in most dictionaries. A separation of 
them at any rate, after the usual manner, seems more proper. 

Other objections might be made to the usual form of medical dic- 
tionaries ; but as it is not intended to attempt to establish the pre- 
sent, by a depreciation of others, the Editor has only endeavoured 
to point out a few considerations for the necessity of reformation in 
this species of compilation. 

The peculiarity of this, from those of other Medical Dictionaries, 
may be perceived by perusing the advertisement of the Editor of 
Fox's Dictionary, and which is hereunto annexed. 



1 HE plan of the following Dictionary was conceived, and a consi- 
derable progress made in the execution of it, by Dr. Fox, late phy- 
sician to the London Hospital: a concurrence of circumstances in- 
duced him to leave London before he had sufficient leisure to com- 
plete it. As I was known to have conversed with him frequently 
on the subject of his intended work, the publishers, who were in 
possession of his manuscript, requested my opinion of the plan and 
execution as far as it had proceeded ; and my approbation of both 
involved me in the task of supplying the defective parts, and super- 
intending the edition. 

When a new book appears on a subject on which there are manv 
good ones already, the public expect to receive an answer to the ob- 
vious question, " What need was there for another ?" Several of 
those medical dictionaries which have preceded this possess great 
merit, and most of them have some merit which ours does not pos- 
sess. This must follow from the small size of the present volume*. 
But, small as it is, we believe it will be found to contain several use- 
ful kinds of information not to be met with in any other single work • 
and of those I am now to give some account. 

I. It contains an explanation of a far greater number of words 
than any other similar work which we have seen, however volumi- 
nous. We have, indeed, endeavoured to include every Latin and 
technical term that has ever occured in the practice of medicine 
surgery, pharmacy, botany, and chymistry : we believe, there- 
fore, that a student may consult this dictionary with an assurance 
that he will not be disappointed in finding the term he may want. 
* Dr. Bradley's edition is a small sized octavo. 


On this account, we may consider it as an universal inrlex on the 
subjects of medicine, surgery, and natural history, as far as it relates 
to medicine, and may be appropriated by the student to his common- 
place book, or any books that have no indexes, by references in the 
margin opposite the principal term. 

II. But the peculiar excellence of this dictionary consists in its 
property of being a remembrancer. No memory can retain all the 
words and ideas which are presented to it in the course of reading 
and hearing. Clear and vivid ideas, or terms, become faint and ob- 
scure from a want of repetition ; and there is a degree of imperfect 
remembrance or doubt, more distressing to the mind than complete 
oblivion ; and this work, we hope, will be found a specific in this 
very irksome and unpleasant state of mind. The names of Hoff- 
man, Dover, Rufus, Helmont, Locatelli, Paracelsus, &c. &c. have 
ceased to accompany the formulae, till lately, designated by them in 
pharmacopoeias : such will be here found added to their peculiar 
medicines ; see Liquor Anodynus, Pulvis, Pilula, Balsconum, Elixir, 
£s?c. The species and varieties included under the words Tinctura, 
Spiritus, Pilula, Pubis, Unguentum, Vertebra, &c. &c. as well as 
those brought together under chymical and botanical generic distinc- 
tions, will, we hope, on being consulted, sufficiently demonstrate the 
utility of this part of the plan. The subjects of natural history be- 
ing indefinite in number, and new ones presenting themselves daily, 
in every part of the world, it will not be expected that the names of 
all plants, or insects, can be contained in this small volume ; but we 
hope that nothing appertaining to medicine or surgery is omitted. 

Lastly. The troublesome and disgusting practice of lexicogra- 
phers, in referring the student from one article to another, in distant 
parts of the book, for explanations, is here studiously avoided. 
The explanation of every term accompanies, or is found in the same 
opening of the book, if reference is made to another word. The 
chief object has been, in every part, to give prompt answers to all 
reasonable questions on the above subjects, and to economize the 
time, labour, and expence of the purchaser.

of the 

Acacia vera, or inspissated juice of the 
unripe fruit of the mimosa nilotica,
