THE NATURAL SYSTEM
THE HUMAN BODY.
WITH A REPUBLICATION OF
THE PAPERS DELIVERED TO THE ROYAL SOCIETY,
ON THE SUBJECT OF THE NERVES.
BY CHARLES BELL,
PROFESSOR OF ANATOMY AND 'SURGERY TO THE ROYAL
COLLEGE OF SURGEONS ;
AND SURGEON TO THE MIDDLESEX HOSPITAL.
In the Introduction to these papers the Author has given the reasons which his friends have urged for this publication ; but he cannot let this opportunity pass without making an apology for its imperfections.
It was not his original intention to publish in this manner, but to continue to give distinct dissertations, under the auspices of the Royal Society, and afterwards to publish engravings of the nervous system.
