Excerpt from The Works of Thomas Sydenham, Vol. 1 of 2

The present translation is from the text of Dr. Green hills edition; a work of great care and accuracy, and one from which the notes and indices have supplied the present writer with an amount of information that has materially lightened his labour.

The latitude that he has allowed himself in rendering the Latin of the original into equivalent English may, to some appear considerable: nevertheless, it is considered not to exceed the average latitude recognised by the translators of long works. This permits the breaking up of long and compound periods, the fusion of many simple sentences into a few complex ones, the conversion of parenthetic observations into independent sentences, transpositions, and similar licences. But it does not admit misrepresentations, omissions, or additions.

It may be necessary to suggest to the reader that, although the Latin style of the works of Sydenham is highly valued, and, with the single fault of being somewhat too studiously idiomatic, is altogether worthy both of its subject and its author, it is far from improbable that the English equivalent may disappoint such readers as are prepared, or over-prepared, with their admiration. Now the responsibility for any difference between the merits of our author in his original garb and his English dress lies only partially with the translator. That some of it lies with him, it is unnecessary to affirm. Some, however, is attributable to another cause.
