A scarce work on cholera, published in the wake of the Mexican-American War. The author identifies himself as a retired medical doctor, and he proceeds to explain how to diagnose cholera, his "rational" method for curing it, and suggestions for easing a patient's recuperation. At the end of the work he provides recipes for the various medicines and tonics he prescribes, noting that he would not profit on human suffering like some others. Cholera became a serious problem in Mexico City and several other locales following the Mexican-American War. A scarce work, not in Palau. We locate a handful of copies located in OCLC.
Sutro 858.

Price: $850.00
