Excerpt from Curious Bypaths of History: Being Medico-Historical Studies and Observations

The pathology of history is one of the most fascinating studies that can occupy the attention whether of the general reader or the professional man. It contains surprises beside which the revelations of the sensational novel dwindle into commonplace. Studies like these, moreover, derive increased interest from the fact of being based on documentary evidence. Such proofs we admit, are not of a nature always to carry conviction to minds steeped in scepticism, but they are the only kind procurable, and, it must not be overlooked that, life itself is largely made up of a more or less fine balancing of probabilities. The task of the modern historian is less to discover new truths than to strip off the lies that have grown up clustering around the old tradi tions. We do not pretend that new material is no longer to be found. The contents of the present work would sufficiently refute any such theory.

It is with much misgiving that we issue the present book. Its predecessor, entitled The Secret Cabinet of History, was received with such a shout, as a Hibernian friend called it, of ominous Silence by the English Press that small kindness is expected for the present venture.
