Comments: Hufeland's Makrobiotik was one of the most popular books of its time on personal hygiene. It was translated into all European languages and saw many editions of which this one followed 5 years after the first publication in 1797 (GM 1602). A friend and physician of Goethe, Schiller, and Herder, Hufeland was also one of the great pioneers of medical journalism. In this work he sets forth his theories on the prolongation of life and on old age. It was Hufeland's belief that only farmers, hunters, gardeners, soldiers and sailors lived to very advanced age as a result of their regular way of life. But abstract thinking, scientific work, and confinement in closed rooms he considered detrimental to longevity. Hirsch, 3, 329.

If this website is the closest I ever come to shopping in NY, NY, it has been a pleasure. I have checked the store on-line, and you may have to block me out -- it looks very tempting. It may replace my childhood fantasy of getting locked in our small town library. One little old lady and sevens floors of old books--Heaven. Thanks! - Katherine James
