I trust that, having thoroughly revised the "Aids to Forensic Medicine," it may prove as useful to students

preparing for examination in the future as it has been in the past.

PREFACE TO EIGHTH EDITION
This work of the late Dr. William Murrell having met with such a large measure of success, the publishers
thought it would be well to bring out a new edition, and invited me to revise the last impression.

This I have done, and while retaining Dr. Murrell's text closely, I have made large additions, in order to bring the "Aids" up to present requirements. I have also rearranged the matter with the object of making the various sections more consecutive than they were previously.

W.G. AITCHISON ROBERTSON.
