Humbugs of New-York: Being a Remonstrance Against Popular Delusion; Whether in Science, Philosophy, or Religion
Taylor 1838 - REESE, DAVID MERIDETH, M.D. Humbugs of New-York: Being a Remonstrance Against Popular Delusion; Whether in Science, Philosophy, or Religion, New York: John S. Taylor, 1838. 12mo, first edition, pp. xii, 13-267, 4 (ads), brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Predating Mackay's "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds," this book was a "humble attempt to furnish a corrective to the prevailing fanaticism of the day," the author says. That fanaticism included animal magnetism, phrenology and medical quackery. Worldcat locates numerous copies in institutional libraries, but it's scarce in the marketplace. See Sabin 68653. Condition of this book: Covers water-stained with cloth perished at bottom of spine. Light to moderate foxing, overall sound. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
