ITS LITERARY, SCIENTIFIC, AND MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS,
WITH NOTES ON THE PRESENT STATE OF SCIENCE, AND A GUIDE TO THE HOSPITALS
AND SANATORY ESTABLISHMENTS OP VIENXA.
BY W. R. WILDE, M.R.I.A. F.R.C.S.I.,
Author of " Narrative of a Voyage to Madeira, Palestine, &c."
and the Medical Report on the late Irish Census, &c. &c.
“ There are few works that have been presented to our notice that have so fully satisfied us by the completeness of detail as the present. This work is vastly superior to Kohl, in correctness of statistics and solid information, without flippancy.”—Foreign and Colonial Quarterly Review.
“ The more important parts of the work have been tested by personal inspection; and much remark or criticism, the result of personal observation, pervades the work, adding weight to the judgment and animating the narrative.”-Spectator.
“ We have to recommend it to the perusal of all who are interested in the state of medical science in Austria, but especially to those who propose going to Vienna, for the purpose of improvement in their profession. A handbook of this description is of the utmost importance, and will be appreciated by many who have been abroad, and who, for want of such a guide, have lost much valuable time before becoming possessed of the kind of knowledge which Mr. Wilde supplies.”—Cormack's Monthly Journal of Medical Science.
“ The little book of Mr. Wilde is serious, solid, and instructive. It really contains much valuable information on Austrian institutions. Mr. Wilde's statistical tables are exceedingly curious and instructive." Britannia.
“The work, although the production of a medical man, and treating most especially on subjects connected with the profession, is by no means divested of higher and more extended information. It is the result of good opportunities industriously improved, and it is a valuable addition to the Englishman's knowledge of the statistics and policy of Austria."-Athenæum.
“ Our author's work is by no means prolix, not extending beyond three hundred and twenty-five pages; but as great pains have evidently been taken to arrange and condense his materials, he has been thereby enabled to compress a vast fund of information within this comparatively narrow compass. ... Another of the many instances before the world of how agreeable a book can be made on apparently the least amusing topics by a clever man, particularly when that clever man is a clever physician.”Dublin University Magazine.
“For several years past they have been much engaged in England in bringing about a reform of their medical constitution ; for, the defectiveness and insufficiency of the examining authorities, as well as the medical police, compared with the excellent regulations of several of the continental states, has caused energetic meetings of the distinguished physicians, and parliament has already directed its attention to this important object. Under such circumstances, any report concerning the medical arrangements of other countries, was most desirable; and no one has fulfilled this task so satisfactorily, so impartially, and in so complete a manner, as the author of the work in question."— Oppenheim's Zeitschrift für die Gesammte Medicin.
“We have just received this very interesting work, and from the hasty perusal we have had time to give it, we are sure that it will not disappoint the high expectations of those acquainted with Dr. Wilde's other writings. A work so instructive and so attractive will, we trust, soon be extensively circulated.”- British Journal of Homæopathy, September, 1843.
“ Dr. Wilde's well-earned character as an indefatigable traveller, an acute and original observer, and a most agreeable writer, led us to anticipate a valuable and interesting work upon Austria from his pen. Nor have we been disappointed. The book belongs to that pleasant, neutral ground, where science and literature, politics and general information, harmoniously mingle. .... To one about to visit Vienna, whether in the capacity of a medical student, or a general observer of men and manners, this book will be found an admirable guide.”—British Journal of Homæopathy, October, 1843.
“We have attentively perused Mr. Wilde's work, and consider it as a highly creditable performance. The author has set an example of industry it would be well were the liberally-endowed travelling fellows of Oxford to follow. . . We recommend the work as a useful hand-book to students visiting the Austrian metropolis.”—Provincial Medical Journal.
