Quarto. XVI, 840, [2], 901, [1]pp. Original leather with gold lettering on spines. Scarce first edition of this gem of medicine literature which, while aiming to present whatever in Therapeutics and Pharmacology is directly and practically important to the physician, intends also to be an exponent specially of what the author himself knows and believes on the subjects of which it treats. Some age wear on bindings with spines and edges rubbed. Sporadic and minor foxing throughout. Slight age-toning along paper margin. Bindings in overall fair, interior in good to very good condition.
