Explanation of all the Terms used in Medicine, Surgery,

Medica. Compiled from the best Authorities, by John Red-

graving, and etching historical and other prints." 

Clerk of the District of Pennsylvania. 


THE basis of the present work is Dr. Fox's " New Medical 
Dictionary, revised and augmented by Dr. Bradley." Upon com- 
paring it with other works of the same nature, it was perceived 
that large and valuable additions might be introduced, which had 
been overlooked 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 added 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 present instance; and he has only to hope that those amend- 
ments 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 expense. A beginner will 
most likely consult a regular and approved history of any disease, 
of which he is reading; and one more advanced requires a dic- 
tionary, 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 a 
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 
dictionaries; but as it is not intended to attempt to establish the 
present, by a depreciation of others, the Editor has only endea- 
voured +o point out a few considerations for the necessity of refor- 
mation in this species of compilation. 

The peculiarity of this, from those of other Medical Dictiona- 
ries, may be perceived by perusing the advertisement of the Edi- 
tor of Fox's Dictionary, and which is hereunto annexed. 


1 HE plan of the following Dictionary was conceived, and a con- 
siderable progress made in the execution of it, by Dr. Fox, late 
physician to the London Hospital: a concurrence of circumstances 
induced him to leave London before he had sufficient leisure to 
complete it. As I was known to have conversed with him fre- 
quently 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 approba- 
tion of both involved me in the task of supplying the defective 
parts, and superintending the edition. 

When a new book appears on a subject on which there are many 
good ones already, the public expect to receive an answer to the 
obvious 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 
possess. This must follow from the small size of the present vo- 
lume.* But, small as it is, we believe it will be found to contain 
several useful kinds of information not to be met within 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 occurred in the practice of medi- 
cine, surgery, pharmacy, botany, and chemistry: we believe, 
therefore, that a student may consult this dictionary with an 
assurance that he will not be disappointed in finding the term he may 

* Dr. Bradley's edition is a small sized octavo. 


want. On this account we may consider it as an universal index 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 re- 
ferences in the margin opposite the principal term. 

II. But the peculiar excellence of this dictionary consists in its 
propriety 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 
obscure from a want of repetition; and there is a degree of imperfect 
remembrance or doubt, more distressing to the mind than com- 
plete oblivion; and this work, we hope, will be found a specific in 
this very irksome and unpleasant state of mind. The names of 
Hoffman, Dover, Rufus, Helmont, Locatelli, Paracelsus, 8tc. Sec 
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, Balsa- 
mum, Elixir, &c. The species and varieties included under the 
words Tinctura, Spiritus, Pilula, Pulvis, Unguentum, Vertebra, 
&?c. &?c. as well as those brought together under chemical and bo- 
tanical generic distinctions, will, we hope, on being consulted, suf- 
ficiently demonstrate the utility of this part of the plan. The sub- 
jects of natural history being 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 expense of the purchaser.
