"Philosophical and erudite thinkers of past ages have published tomes of greater or less magnitude upon this subject; among these authors, it may be sufficient, at this moment, to mention Schurig, Etmuller, Flemming, Paullini, Beckherius, Rosinus Lentilius, and Levinus Lemnius. The historian Buckle regarded the subject as one well worthy of examination and study, as will appear in the text from the memoranda found in his scrap-books after his death.

The philosopher Boyle is credited with the paternity of a work which appeared over the signature B, bearing upon the same topic.

The anonymous author or authors of the very learned pamphlet Bibliotheca Scatalogica, for the perusal of which I am indebted to the courtesy of Surgeon John S. Billings, collected a mass of most valuable bibliographical references.

Quite recently there have appeared in the litterlungen Gesselsch., Wien, 1888, two pages of the work of Dr. M. Hofler, Volksmedicin und Aberglaube in Oberbayern Gegenwart und Vergangenheit, describing some of the excrementitious remedies still existing in the folk-medicine of Bavaria."
