537pp. Octavo [21 cm] 3/4 light brown leather with marbled paper covered boards. Rebacked, with new endsheets and flyleaves. Very good. The covers are gently rubbed and bumped. The marbled paper on the covers is darkened along the edges. The underlying boards are exposed along the edges and surrounding areas of the boards. There is a small abraded patch in the leather at the foot of the spine. The front free endsheet has a vertical crease that runs from the top to the bottom of the page. There is an ink stamp on the title page. There are also several brief light notations on the page as well. The pages are mildly browned. There is occasional light foxing throughout the pages. Several pages also have slightly larger dark stains or very minor hatching in pencil.
Subjects include the circulation of the blood, respiration, inflammatory fevers and more.
