Domestic Medicine

£125.00

Product description

The full title of this book is Domestic Medicine, or, A Treatise on the Prevention And Cure Of Diseases, by Regimen And Simple Medicines: with observations on Sea-Bathing And The Use Of The Mineral Waters to which is annexed, A Dispensatory For The Use Of Private Practitioners. This edition is from the twenty-second English Edition, with considerable additions, and notes, This edition was published in 1839.

This book is in fair condition: the spine is missing resulting in many of the pages being loose. The pages inevitably have yellowed and are a little grubby. The first page is torn and has a personal inscription on it.

This New Edition of the Domestic Medicine, comes before the public with fresh claims upon their attention. It has undergone a thorough revision, with considerable additions and improvements. The little obsolete or irrelevant matter, scattered here and there in the preceding edition, has been expunged, and its place supplied with information of a more useful and more recent nature, which it was deemed essentially necessary not to omit, in order that a book so familiar to all ranks of society, might keep pace with the various improvements and opinions which have taken place of late years in medical science.
