London: William Nicol, 1823. First Edition. Disbound. Good. First Edition. [2], 21 pages. 4to. Disbound. Ex Libris stamp Edinensis Medicae Societatis in several places.

[ London ]: np, 1775. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. First Edition. [1]-4 pp. 8vo. Extracted from a bound volume, with offsetting on the last page indicating it was bound opposite the September 1770 issue title page of Gentleman's Magazine. Small marginal hole not affecting text. Disbound. Caption title from page one. English Short Title Catalog, N12918. Blake, J. NLM 18th cent.; p. 488 (both copies at NLM are extracts). While well represented in digital form, this title is only found at the National Library of Medicine from what we have been able to determine, which guesses that the publication date is 1775. Our copy, with the offsetting from a September 1770 title page may help in further scholarship on the date of publication.
