London: George Strahan, . Second Edition Blindstamped paneled calf leather; xx [24] 232 pages. Chapters on proper diet, exercise, sleeping, etc. Aimed at the lay reader, much of Cheyne's advice was based upon his own hypochondria and continual struggle with obesity--at one time he weighed over 440 pounds. In another work Cheyne described his hypochondria, which he blamed on the English weather, and estimated that a third of his patients were neurotic. Bitting (p. 86) cites only the 1727 French edition, noting it as rare. Crahan 268; Heirs of Hippocrates 761; Osler 2303; Wellcome II, p. 338. Modern bookplate of Nellie Madeleine Brown, M.D. on the front free endpaper; spine label partly present. Some rubbing and edgewear, short splits in joints. Nice copy (Item ID: 002982)
