About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Theriaki and Their Last Dose: Letters of Fitz Hugh Ludlow and Others, to Dr. Samuel B. Collins, Relating to the Most Wonderful Medical Discovery of the Age.

Description:

8vo. 76 pages. Original blue polished calf, titled in gilt on front cover, a gilt leafy border (some light rubbing). FIRST EDITION of this scarce work on opium addiction: we find no copies at auction or in the trade according to online databases. Within twenty years of the arrival of the first Chinese in the United States, opium smoking had begun to spread. It was reported by Dr. Harry Hubbell Kane that the first American smoked opium in 1868, making this work a very early study of the drug's presence in the US. Samuel Collins opened a clinic to treat opium addicts and published this early pamphlet, and more in the coming years, on his treatment. "Theriaki" was a term used to define an "opium eater," and is found in the works of Balzac and other 19th-century writers. Fine. Bookseller Inventory #
