Exposition succinte des Principes et des Propriétés des Eaux minérales, qu'on distribue au Bureau Général de Paris

by [RAULIN, Joseph]

Condition: See description


75 pp. Small 8vo, cont. red crushed morocco, triple gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt, green morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: C. Herissant, 1775. First edition of a fairly scarce book. Raulin (1708-84), physician-in-ordinary to the King and a fellow of the London Royal Society, had an extensive practice and was a prolific writer on medical and balneological subjects. His writings were known for their clarity and for the great number of new observations. The present work is an account of the chief mineral springs of Europe. Raulin describes the chemical constituents of each spring, methods of treatment, and the medical benefits. A fine and lovely copy. ❧ Ferchl, p. 433. Hirsch, IV, p. 734.
