A popular textbook on pathology and morbid anatomy which went through numerous editions in England and America. What is now called pathology in medical practice was previously more rigorously defined and delineated from other branches of study. Pathology being the study of disease processes, the clinical practice divides into gross pathology (macroscopic) and histopathology (microscopic). What is now called gross pathology was formerly called morbid anatomy.
