THE ANNALIST, A RECORD OF PRACTICAL MEDICINE IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK. EDITED BY WM. C. ROBERTS, M.D., FELLOW OF THE COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF NEW YORK. Vol. II, No. 8, New-York, January 15, 1848.

By Pliny Earle, M.D.” Pliny Earle (1809 – 1892) was the first American psychiatrist to note recurrent episodes of mental illness followed by recoveries in a patient should not be counted as “cures.” Bloomingdale Asylum statistics thus affirmed the curability of insanity at younger ages. This article was based on data gathered during his time at the Bloomingdale Asylum in New York 1844 – 1855. Disbound issue, resewn.
