Simpkin, Marshall, & Co. 1860 Half title. Orig. wavy-grained cloth; sl. rubbed. Two booksellers' tickets on leading pastedown. v.g.A scientific argument for the adoption of a simple, natural and animal-free diet. Commenting on the current relationship between people and food Smith argues that 'instead of adhering to the simple diet of nature as closely as climate, the engagements of civic and social life, and other circumstances would permit, man seems to have been contriving how he could depart the furthest from it'. On the consumption of meat and fish, he notes that 'the flesh and blood of animals are entirely excluded from all preparations contained in this work, being considered unnecessary, unnatural, and frequently injurious to man'.
