About this Item

First American Edition. Printed by W. Myer, New Brunswick ( NJ). Pages 74 pp.4to. Ruled Blue Paper Covered Boards with Paper Spine. First American Edition. Austin 416. AI 47517. G-M 1604.1 (English Edition, 1817) Copy of "Elijah C. Kille / Pennsylvania / University / Anno / Domini / 1822." Later, copy of Oliver Rolande and H. C. Kinzer (bookplate on front pastedown). A superb example of the so-called practical trend in the caring for the aged, begun in 19th Century England, and now again coming into vogue. The author recommends that young people adopt a sound regimen (diet, lifestyle, etc.)early in life and practice preventive medicine in order to secure longevity. Carlisle (1768Ð1840) was surgeon-extaordinary to the Prince Regent and Professor at London (Westminster Hospital), and was noteworthy for his improvements in surgical instruments. Very Good.
