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.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
