RUSH, Benjamin. Medical Inquiries and Observations. Phila.: J.

Two to Four, full contemporary speckled calf, black and red morocco spine labels, gilt-ruled spines. Light scattered foxing, else a very good or better set. Austin 1661. Sabin 74229. "Rush was considered the ablest American clinician of his time. He was a friend of Benjamin Franklin and one of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence. His many writings are distinguished for their classical style . Rush probably had more influence on American medicine than any other single man"--Garrison and Morton, 80. The first two volumes consist of essays covering a wide variety of subjects, such as the history of medicine among the Indians, the climate of Pennsylvania, diseases prevalent during the Revolution, the effects of spirits on the mind and body, old age, the duties of the physician, as well as observations on such diseases as pulmonary consumption, dropsy, gout, hydrophobia, measles and influenza. The last two volumes are almost entirely devoted to Rush's writings on yellow fever. Rush's description of dengue, "bilious remitting fever," is one of the first important accounts of the disease.
