Comments: First Edition. From 1815, Burrows devoted himself entirely to the treatment of insanity and was the proprietor of a private asylum in Clapham. The above work was described as a "well reasoned statistical study." Burrows demonstrated that the reported increase in insanity was more apparent than real and ascribed this apparent increase to "the powerful interest the subject of mental derangement has excited" as well as to the increasing numbers sent to asylums. Statistical folding chart, a fine copy. Wellcome II, p. 277.
