Notes :

In calling attention to the next figure, a micro-photograph, I desire to acknowledge my great obligation to Dr. M. Greely Parker, of Lowell, for his aid and instruction in the making of micro-photographs.

Figs. 8, 1 1, and 13 were taken by the light of a common petroleum lamp ; and as, in this manner, without expensive apparatus, it is possible for physicians to record the results of their microscopic work, I hope that great benefit will result from a general use of this fascinating branch of pathological study.— Page 4.

Inaugural article of Dr. Cushing's gynecology journal, liberally illustrated with photographic engravings. Many of the photographs for the journal were provided by Cushing's close colleague, Dr. Moses Greely Parker, who also contributed a paper on photomicrography. One reviewer observed that the cost of $1.00 for an issue was inexpensive for a journal so richly illustrated. The journal was short-lived withal.
