About this Item

The author of this very scarce pamphlet identifies himself as a retired medical doctor who at the time of its writing was about to leave for England. He tells how to diagnose cholera, explains his "rational" method for curing it (based on methods used successfully in England, the United States, and parts of Europe), and gives suggestions for easing recuperation. At the end of the work he gives the composition of the various medicines and tonics he prescribes, because "detest[o] por mi parte el monopolio que algunos han hecho de sus medicamentos a fin de lucrar a costa de la humanidad doliente." Cholera became a serious problem in Mexico City and in several other places in the country in the wake of the Mexican?American War. Dr. Duck says of his reasons for writing this opusculum of medical advice, "solo me ha impulsado el deseo que tengo de auxiliar a una Nacion que me es querida." Very rare. 8vo. 16 pp. Sutro 858; not in Palau. Author not in: Archivo biogr?fico de Espa?a, Portugal, e Iberoam?rica; or Diccionario Porr?a de historia, biograf?a y geograf?a de M?xico (5a ed.). Fine condition; sewn in original cream-colored printed wrappers with elaborate, ornamental borders on both covers. Wrappers very lightly soiled; a clean, untattered copy.
