Seven years ago, in 1880, rabies or hydrophobia had already been known, dreaded, and studied, in Europe, for more than 2,000 years. Countless authors had written upon it, beginning, so far as we can ascertain, with Democritus in the fifth century B.C., down to and including many living men of mark. Yet all our knowledge of it could be summarised in a very few pages. The disease, at first circumscribed, to all appearances, within a few limited geographical areas, had, with increasing facilities of intercommunication between nations, gradually spread to nearly every country of the globe, irrespective of latitude or longitude. It raged, with varying intensity, at all seasons of the year, and often assumed the proportions of an epidemic.
