8vo, pp. (xii), 192, (4). Complete with the initial imprimatur leaf and the final two advertisement leaves. Good modern half calf antique, spine gilt, red morocco label. Early signature of Jonathan Freer and a faint library stamp on the title. A nice, clean copy. SOLE EDITION of the first book on the diseases endemic to Barbados and perhaps the second book on the diseases of the Caribbean, published the year after the work on Jamaica of Sir Hans Sloane, to whom this book is dedicated (and who, says Towne in his dedication, had ?unquestionably the best physical library in the world?). In this work Towne records the results of seven years clinical experience in Barbados, describing each of the prevalent diseases in detail and the modes of treatment that he found successful. He includes prescription formulas for the various medicines he administered for each disease. N° de réf. du libraire 2754
