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.

Many thanks for your help... Over the years I have spent many happy hours at the Argosy - mostly among your old maps. Whenever we have taken a trip, we have bought an old map of the country or area to remind us of where we've been. We have a whole wall of maps from the Argosy. As well as a number of your small prints of areas in the USA. They make wonderful presents for friends and family too - also some of your older books on special subjects. So you can see I am a big fan of the Argosy! - Katherine M.
