Description: 3 engraved plates. 629pp. + index. 8vo, cont. sheep; t.p. worn. London, 1833. Volume I only.

Comments: First volume of a two volume work by the soi-disant "Hygeist", including several articles, having continuous pagination, but preceded by individual t.p.s dated from 1825-1830. Morison's Hygeian System consisted of the Universal Vegetable Medicine, as well as warm baths and vapor baths. The "British College of Health" was an institution of his invention. Morison's Pills were frequently ridiculed by Carlyle and others. - D.N.B.

Your beautifully wrapped package of books -- two copies of "Journal in the Night" -- arrived at my door this morning and made my day! A thousand thanks for the care you took, first to find them, and then to send them as you did, all done up with tissue paper to boot. It was like Christmas in June AND it was my first experience buying books on the Internet. All the best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross again. - Janet B.
