On The Diseases of Females, Thomas J Graham, 1837


On The Diseases of Females; A Treatise illustrating their Symptoms, Causes, Varieties, and Treatment. Including the Diseases and Management of Pregnant and Lying-in Women. Containing also an Appendix on the Proper Principles of the Treatment of Epilepsy; an account of the Symptoms and Treatment of Diseases of the Heart, and a Medical Glossary. By Thomas J. Graham, M.D. &c.

Published by Simpkin, Marshall & Co., London 1837. 2nd edition, revised and enlarged. An early example of this uncommon book. The title page clearly dates the book to 1837, but the Preface from the author carries and 1838 date, so a true publication year of 1838 is clearly more likely.

Text is in good condition - clean throughout, with very little age spotting. Some spotting to endpapers and some ink stains to last blank endpaper spread.
