1705 - FULLER, Francis. MEDICINA GYMNASTICA: or, a Treatise Concerning the Power of Excercise, with Respect to the Animal Oeconomy; and the Great Necessity of it in the Cure of Several Distempers. London, John Matthews, 1705. [xxxvi] 229pp. First edition. The first treatise in English on the use of therapeutic exercise. Fuller proposes mild and repeated exercise in many cases, rather than over medication, "a kind of Embalming a Man before his Death." Addison espoused the therapeutic practice of exercise, and wrote in praise of Fuller's book ("The Spectator," July 12, 1711). Modern reback of early calf, otherwise fine. A handsomely printed book. (BL 1038.1.9).
