About this Item

8vo. [xvi], 299, [ads 1] pp. Original full calf, gilt-stamped spine and red leather spine label; rubbed, upper joint split. Early ownership signature. Good. FIRST EDITION of Senac's work on fevers, "one of the classics in this department of medicine" (Bartlett, p. 436). Senac "practiced in Paris during the reign of Louis XV, when periodical fevers were more common than at present. His treatise is systematic and elaborate; his description of the mixed, irregular, and masked forms of the disease is particularly full and valuable. He speaks of the bark as a divine discovery. The Treatise has a good deal of useless rationalism; but its practical portion is excellent, and it is, on the whole, a capital old book" (Bartlett, p. 436). Bartlett, Elisha. The History, Diagnosis, and Treatment of the Fevers of the United States. Philadelphia: Blanchard & Lea, 1856. Bookseller Inventory # M12436
