Edinburgh: William Gordon, 1758. Hardcover. 436 pages. 21 x 13.5 cm. Medical theory and practice developed rapidly during the mid 1700's and advances in the printing press helped spread scholarship by disseminating both new and long-standing theories of medical concepts. Mackenzie applies this principle by including the history of medicine along with guidelines on new practices and theories. Bookplate to front pastedown (annotated "Edinburgh '28"), ink and pencil notes to rear pastedown contain a homemade Index. Rubbing and loss to leather along board edges. Interior clean. Contemporary leather boards rebacked with matching leather, black title/author labels, lettered in gilt. Very good. Item #2209
