Fourth edition. Portrait frontispiece (frayed at the bottom edge), 12mo, pp 115, (1),(ii), very heavy foxing throughout, lacking a lower part of the front endpaper . Original marbled boards, rubbed and a bit worn, later rebacked with calf spine and red leather label. A delightfully individual copy, as the endpapers contain many contemporary notes for 'Improved Bathing Drops', 'Bitters', and a 'Cure for Drunkeness'. Also loosely inserted are various manuscript additions : 'Mr Fothergill's Recipe for the Rheumatism', a recipe for hurts or contusions of the legs, 'Directions for Using Mudge's Inhaler', and a brief letter from a doctor regarding lacerated or contused wounds. The early edition, and the many contemporary addditions, make this a very desirable copy despite the heavy foxing..
