First edition: Physician to the king of Scotland, John Abercrombie (1780-1844) was particularly interested in pathologies of the mind. His treatise was well-regarded with ten English editions produced in a decade and was used as a textbook as of 1860. Abercrombie, described as a man of great social conscience, associated himself with the public dispensary; he assigned medical students under his supervision to different sectors of the poor in Edinburgh.
