First English edition, [2], ii, xxiv, iii, [1], 435, [1]pp., some foxing, mostly marginal, new endpapers, neatly rebound in half calf, marbled paper sides, orig. morocco labels laid-down. Louis Rouppe (1729-80), naval physician and surgeon. This work contains the result of the authors observations in the course of several years practice in the French Army, and after the Dutch Navy. "During which time he had every opportunity necessary to observe and examine the diseases most common among the Soldiers and the Seamen. Being desirous of taking a Doctor's degree in the University of Leyden, he chose for the subject of his inaugural Thesis, the diseases incidental to Seamen; but having since that a little more leisure on his hands, he revised his Thesis, and greatly enlarged his Plan, and brought it to that degree of perfection, in which it was published in Latin, at Leyden, in the year 1764, and is now translated for the use of the English reader." (Translator's preface).
