Small octavo. Very good. NOTE: The author was born in Northampton, he was Queen Caroline's physician from 1726, a post he held until his death. He had served time in the Tower for alleged sympathy to the Stuart Cause. His work on "The History of Physic" is still one of the classic works consulted until very recently and written in 1725. He travelled to Spain and accompanied and helped the soldiers in the war there. Became a member of the Royal College of Physicians. This work shows that the upright posture of the human is the cause for the menstruation in women and that the blood flowing through the umbilical cord is sufficient to nourish and grow a child in the womb. He specialised in Women's physical ailments.
