About this Item

With 1 folding engraved plate, woodcut vignette head- and tailpieces. Original speckled boards; minor scuffing to extremities, otherwise an excellent copy with contemporary ownership inscription of V. Stein on title, and small library stamp of Joachim W. Voigt. First edition. The doctrine of infarctus had its origin with the Hesse-Homburg physician Johann Kämpf (d.1753) and his son of the same name (1726-87), who published the present "doctrine" of his father's. We won't go into a detailed description, but according to the author, "infarctus" (impacted faeces) is a thickening of the humors in the portal vessels and intestine, and the former becomes filled, stuffed and distended. He here writes of two kinds of "infarctus," the black-bilious and the mucous. This dangerous condition required certain remedial procedures in order for the patient to eliminate. One procedure called visceral-clyster became quite fashionable. Baas notes that other physicians who wrote on the subject were probably induced by their own suffering. Bookseller Inventory # 2478
