About this Item

Abercrombie, John (1780-1844). Autograph letter signed, dated Edinburgh, 20th November 1820, to Dr. Thomas H. Burder (1789-1843). 4pp., including integral address leaf. 251 x 202 mm. Creased where previously folded, light wear along a few folds, light soiling, but very good, preserving Abercrombie's wax seal. Excellent long letter congratulating Burder on the recovery of his health after a four-year illness. Abercrombie was the author of the classic "Pathological and Practical Researches on Diseases of the Brain and the Spinal Cord" (1828; G-M 2285.2), as well as the extremely popular "Inquiries Concerning the Intellectual Powers" (1830). Burder, Abercrombie's correspondent, was a London physician who "suffered from almost constant ill-health" (DNB); his article on "Headache," contributed to the "Cyclopedia of Practical Medicine," was based largely on his own experience.
