Comments: First Edn. in English, translation of Senac's valuable treatise on the nature and treatment of intermitting and remitting fevers. Dr. Senac (1693-1770), an eminent French physician, wrote numerous books and papers on various parts of the anatomy, physiology, and medicine. His works, according to Dr, Ferguson, "were distinguished alike by erudition and by great literary skill and taste." He is probably best remembered for his classic work on the structure of the heart. His treatise on fevers was first published anonymously in 1759. Translated at the suggestion of Rush, to whom the work is appropriately dedicated. Austin 1731. 1c at Med-35 same as above but 299pp. 8vo, contemporary calf; rubbed, hinges mended, ex-lib. Philadelphia, 1805. 1c lacks covers.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
