      London: Thomas Warner; John Clarke; J. Walthoe, [et al. ], 1724-1730. Octavo. Three works in one volume: [36], 206; [12]-112; 192 pp. The first work is the second edition, and the remaining two are both first editions. Contemporary full calf, all edges lightly stained red. Owner's signature in neat ink on the front pastedown. Binding is worn and dry, with the front board detached, else very good with moderate scattered soiling. Three uncommon works by Daniel Turner, a London-based physician, and member of the Barber-Surgeons' Company and the College of Physicians. He published numerous works on the diseases of the skin, venereal diseases, and surgical practice, many of which include important records of specific cases. In The Force of the Mother's Imagination upon her Foetus in Utero Turner argued against the current popular belief in the occurrence of maternal impressions, invariably negative, on the unborn child. All three works are very scarce in the trade.
