SOME CONSIDERATIONS TOUCHING THE USEFULNESSE OF EXPERIMENTAL NATURAL PHILOSOPHY. Propos'd in a Familiar Discourse to a Friend, by way of Invitation to the Study of it. A Second Edition [since the first published June 1663]
Oxford: Printed by Hen: Hall Printer to the University, for Ri: Davis, 1664. Bound in quarto (19 cm x 15.5 cm). Two parts in one volume with the longitudinal or lengthwise title at ddd4. The second issue of the second edition (i.e. Issue B) per Fulton 52 (see Notes in Fulton 51). Irregular pagination but text continuous. Part 1: pp. [xvi], 126 (i.e. 124), [iv] - Index. Signature: 4 ll, A-I4, K-R4; Part 2: pp. 184, 193-288, 287-294, 297-376, 387-416, [xviii] - Index and Note to Reader. Signature: a-d4, c-c4, f-i4, k-u4, x-Ii4, Kk-Uu4, Xx-ddd4, fff-ggg4. Rebound by Emrys Evans with his tiny gilt device on the rear turn-in, in full brown morocco, five raised bands, and gilt-stamped spine titles. Paper is toned with browning to the margins. In Fulton 51 Note, Geoffrey Keynes postulates that issue B was reprinted from issue A in 1671 and published with Part 2 (Tom. II) in that year making a complete work. The work shows a surprising knowledge of natural history, medicine, physics and chemistry, and is of special importance for its comments on medicine. Osler, in his Address on John Locke as a Physician has stated that "there is no work from which one can gain a better idea of the state of medicine about the middle of the seventeenth century." Overall, a very good copy.. Second Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. Octavo.
