TO THE THIRD EDITION.

The former editions of the Code of Health and Longevity comprehended four volumes. In the three last of these were contained, an historical account of the principal works,-a catalogue of foreign and domestic publications,-extracts from the most celebrated writers in modern times, —and a variety of communications to the author, regarding these important subjects*. However much a work on so extensive a scale, might be adapted to minute investigation, it was, on the whole, too voluminous for general use. This edition is therefore restricted to a single volume, in which all discussions of a theoretic nature, together with the historical account of the principal works on health, and the other contents of the three last volumes of the former editions, are left out.

In this edition, however, several chapters are added, on the important subjects of ClothingHabitation-Change of Residence-Customs Bathing—the means of Preventing, and Remedying Accidents or common Disorders and on various articles of a miscellaneous nature; subjects which, in general, were either totally omitted, or but slightly touched upon in the former editions. The work, thus rendered as complete, as it is at present in the power of the author to make it, and restricted to the practical, and more essential parts of the inquiry, is, with great deference, submitted to the judgment of the public.

1st December, 1815.

These three volumes were principally intended for the use of those who might be inclined to study the subject minutely; and to such person they form a sort of medical library respecting the matters therein discussed.
