Mr. Colson's Letter to Sir John Floyer, [London], 1726, occupying pp. [221]-232. Floyer (1649-1734) "was one of the most eccentric physicians of his time, and his works show great independence of thought as well as a true spirit of research" (Heirs of Hippocrates). He was the first physician to make regular observations on the rate of the pulse, was a powerful advocate of cold bathing, and was a pioneer in the field of geriatrics. He also gave the first description of emphysema. Bookseller Inventory # 24227
