PREFACE.

SINCE the publication, now thirty odd years ago, of the excellent little book of Dr. John Bell, we do not know of any work in this country on Personal Beauty, written from the physician's point of view. In Europe, on the other hand, the subject has occupied some of the best writers in the profession; and in view of the vast increase in cosmetic arts within the past few years, it must be regarded as one of great public and professional, as well as personal interest. We have endeavored in the present volume to furnish such an abundance of simple and harmless, yet efficient aids for the toilet, that the dependence on secret and injurious nostrums may be dispensed with, and the beauty of the body cultivated more in accordance with the principles of correct taste and sound health than is now the case.
