About this Item

Robin, Joseph Craven (1806-93). Manuscript medical daybook / ledger. Approx. 260pp., 19 or 20 pages pasted with clippings (primarily poetry). Northumberland County, PA, 1849-62. 328 x 203 mm. Original reverse calf stamped in black, worn. A few leaves in front loose, light toning and spotting, but a very good example. Medical ledger and daybook of Dr. Joseph Craven Robin, the first physician to locate and practice in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. "He first read medicine with his brother William at Sunbury, completing his professional preparation at the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1828 began practice at Sunbury. The following year he removed to Elysburg, at which point he was the first physician to locate permanently, and he was in active practice there for forty-two years, his field covering all the eastern part of Northumberland County and the adjoining portions of Montour, Columbia and Schuylkill counties. He was of the old 'saddle-bag' doctors, and in spite of the hardships of a physician's life in his day survived all his fellow practitioners who were in practice at the time his career began, living to the advanced age of eighty-seven years. He retired from active professional labors about 1870" (Floyd's Northumberland County Genealogy). Bookseller Inventory # 42428
