About this Item

Cheyne, George (1671-1743). The English malady: Or, a treatise of nervous diseases of all kinds, as spleen, vapours, lowness of spirits, hypochodriacal, and hysterical distempers, &c. [6], xxiv, [2], 256pp. London & Dublin: re-printed by S. Powell, for George Risk, George Ewing, and William Smith, 1733. 18th cent. calf, rebacked. Light toning, occasional foxing. First Dublin edition, issued the same year as the London edition. G-M 4840. Cheyne's term "English malady" refers to depression, the causes of which Cheyne listed as moist air, the variable English climate, too much meat and alcohol, sedentary habits and overcrowding. Among the clinical illustrations Cheyne included his own case, which he cured by purges, a milk and vegetable diet and the study of religious writings. Cheyne's work inspired an interest in England in exploring the metaphysical relationship between mind and body. Howells, p. 190. Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 351-354. Bookseller Inventory # 39695
