MEMORABLE EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A LONDON PHYSICIAN IN THREE PARTS, ANON [ Samual Dickson ]
12 ANON [ Samual Dickson ] MEMORABLE EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A LONDON PHYSICIAN IN THREE PARTS
LONDON VIRTUE BROTHERS 1863 1st Edition Hardcover Good Book 
SCARCE book which is quite difficult to source. Burgundy Shagrin effect cloth boards with black title label and gilt titles to spine. 230 x 150 mm approx. Yellow made end papers, 276pp + 20pp publisher's catalogue dated June 1863. Published anonymously the book is attributed as being the work of Samuel Dickson 1802-1869 a pioneer in the work of Chron-Thermal Medicine, on treating cholera and other diseases and who crusaded against the practice of blood letting and other now outmoded "cures". The book conveys his feeling of injustice at not receiving recognition for his work and which was claimed by others. (Spectator 11th July 1863). Good (Book- recently re-sewn on three tapes with repaired cuts of up to 90mm approx to first 11 leaves of the book block commencing at the title page and re- cased. NB not one of my best mainly due to the title block extending slightly round the edge of the spine principally due to the absence in my bindery of a font size small enough to accommodate the title and the grain of the book cloth flattened in places due to too much pressure in the nipping press. It is a long and frustrating learning curve! Nevertheless compared to it's dis bound and mal treated state when acquired it is now returned to the market to give many more years of service.

The Natural History and Antiquities of the County of Surrey  , 5 vol set Facsmile, Aubrey, John
14 Aubrey, John The Natural History and Antiquities of the County of Surrey , 5 vol set Facsmile
Dorking Kohler & Coombes 1975 0903967251 / 9780903967259 1st Edition Thus Hardcover VG+ Near Fine Book 
5 VOLS set.The Natural History and Antiquities of the County of Surrey.Beige buckram boards with gilt titles to spine, 230x150 mm approx, being the Facsimile reprint of the work first published by Dr Richard Rawlinson in 1718-19. John Aubrey (1626-1697) is perhaps best known today for his book "Brief Lives" which was made into a successful West End play in the early 1970's. The work is essentially a Perambulation of the County carried out by John Aubrey in the summer of 1673 added to by a second by Richard Rawlinson the Oxford bibliophile in 1717 and as such provides a glimpse of the towns, villages and hamlets of the county with notes on their principle trades, houses, churches and graveyard memorials. There are numerous unspecified illustrations , some fold out, including family pedigrees. A work of interest to any collector of books on Surrey, family historians and to present and past residents. The set offered by us is in particularly fresh condition and would be graded as fine but for a 40mm approx tear to the fold out map of the county which has now been professionally repaired and slight markings to some of the end papers from cellotape used by a previous owner to affix cellophane wrappers to protect the jackets. The Dust Jackets are accordingly in fine condition, non price clipped and now protected by proprietary protective wrappers). No previous owner names, insc. nor annotations. An ideal gift or prize for the book shelf of a Surry bibliophile. Please see our images of the actual set offered for sale. We regret due to the weight of the volumes additional postage will need be sought for overseas orders.
