Description: ix, 37 pages. 8vo, modern wrappers. Philadelphia, 1838.

Comments: First Edition. A rare and valuable copy of this protest by the eminent naval surgeon. Packard (ii, p. 697) states that Barton was merely opposed to the "title, Surgeon General," but the pamphlet makes it clear that he was opposed to the office as well. The DAB states that Barton was apparently opposed to the creation of this new position because he was "jealous of the new office."

Thank you for your kind response. As it turns out, I was able to visit the Argosy on Tuesday. In fact, I arrived shortly after opening and stayed most of the morning, making a number of purchases. I notice that you wrote to me a 10:34 AM, meaning that I was in the store when you sent me an email. One of life's many coincidences... Again, many thanks for your courteous response. Best regards, until my next visit! - Phillip R.
