Philadelphia: T. Wardle, 1836.
First American edition, from the thirteenth English edition, corrected. Two volumes, bound in publisher's original brown cloth decorated in blind, with titles in gilt on the spines. Very Good. Cloth faded and lightly worn at the spine ends. Pages heavily foxed, marginal tear to pp. 195 in Volume I, small rubber stamped numbers to rear free endpapers. An immensely popular book in the 17th century, Burton's work was part medical text, part literature and part in a class of its own. Item #140941590
