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

Description:
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.
