ANCELL, Henry.
A Treatise on Tuberculosis, the Constitutional Origin of Consumption and Scrofula.

pp. xxii, (ii), 779, (i). Original cloth newly rebacked, the author's presentation copy to THOMAS MARTIN with an ALS to Martin [10th.Oct.1852] - ' ...... when you have had leisure to look it over I should be obliged by your giving me your unbiased opinion - my desire is to follow out the subject, & if I should be fortunate enough to return the pecuniary outlay, I hope to publish a second and improved edition. I am suffering from having overstrained my sight & am unable at present to wield my own pen. I shall be happy to hear that you are well. P.S. I have the pleasure to return your Book- you will I am sure rejoice over your, some-time, lost treasure.'

*Ancell died in 1863 and it does not appear that he covered his costs as a second edition was never issued.
