Comments: Written in his seventieth year, this treatise was the result of fifty years' observation and treatment. Duncan did more than any other man of his time to bring Edinburgh medical teaching to the high esteem it enjoyed. At the end is a paper by Duncan on the preparation of sporific medicines from garden lettuce. This remedy Duncan found most effective for the cough accompanying consumption.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
