A Practical Inquiry Into Disordered Respiration; Distinguishing the Species of Convulsive Asthma, their Causes and Indications of Cure.

London: Richard Phillips, 1807. Fourth edition, 'With additional practical observations.'. Hardcover, 8vo. xxiv + 376 (last three pages un-numbered adverts). Contemporary tree calf, gilt tooled on edges of boards. An important early study of asthma, drawn at least in part from the author/physician's personal experience. Chipped patch on spine where there was presumably once a leather title label, boards heavily rubbed, particularly at edges, hinges cracked but holding. The first blank is torn, and appears to have been reinserted with a line of glue down the inner margin, contemporary owner's signature on titlepage, some light foxing throughout. Still a near VG copy. Item #26223
