Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Edition: First Edition


vi, 92 pages. 'A man who is devoted to the cultivation of letters is too apt to forget that the soundness of his understanding depends much on the vigour of his bodily powers. He regards the application of the means necessary to preserved the latter, as a comparitively tiresome and forbidding employment, and dreams far more of the success he anticipates, or the glory to which he aspired, than of the care he ought to bestow upon his health.' First published as a series of essays in the Boston Medical Intelligencer. Sabin no. 71765. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in the original plain brown boards and cloth spine; lacking the spine label and with the endpapers renewed with old paper. Some foxing and minor staining to the page block, but a very nice copy of a scarce book. Bookseller Inventory # 88498
