For thirty-three years the Faculty of the Harvard Medical School has given a series of free Sunday afternoon lectures, making available to the public current knowledge of the causation, treatment, and prevention of disease. The lectures have attained an established place in the program of events in Greater Boston, and have maintained large, usually capacity, audiences. The demand for copies of various lectures has been so great that we have now chosen twelve of the most popular ones from the last two or three years, for publication in this timely volume.
