Second edition. xxi,-547 pp., +  p. adv. & 30 pp. publisher's catalogue. Octavo. Worn contemporary binding of full leather, with black morocco spine label, which is dry and scuffed at spine and along edges, with some general soiling and a few stains. Text leaves show light to (mostly) moderate foxing, though heavy in a few places. Just about very good. $120.00 This is a second edition of Bartlett's chief work (it was printed four times between 1842-1857), in which he gives a remarkably accurate description of typhoid fever.
