"All that regards regimen and health being furnished by medical friends, and revised by Sir Anthony Carlisle, F.R.S. Vice President of the College of Surgeons.” A rare and detailed study of nineteenth-century health, of particular interest also for the fascinating (and very early!) 'before and after' plates of women's fashion.Item #1013
Octavo, 11 plates (10 in colour), the colour plates bound as matched pairs with the upper plates featuring peek-a-boo windows to reveal the image beneath; shaken, but a fine copy in contemporary half green morocco, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.
