Description

eBay item number:
120949020811
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

Book entitled PRIMITIVE PHYSICK:  AN EASY AND NATURAL METHOD OF CURING MOST DISEASES, by John Wesley.  The book is a litany of cures for eveything imaginable -- over 1000 diseases, disorders, maladies, etc.  Very specific cures.  My favorite is for "raging madness"...the book suggests that you either have the person stand for as long as they can under a "great waterfall" or if that doesn't work, have them eat nothing but apples for a month!

The book is probably in fair condition.  Leather boards are worn, but binding remains tight.  The title page is missing, so I'm unsure of the date.  The title was found by searching on the internet specific phrases found in the work.  There is some waterstaining throughout and the back hinge is cracked, but again, book remains tightly bound.  Some pencil marks.  Still, there is a wealth of information here about early holistic cures.  Probably was a staple for many Colonial families and perhaps even soldiers during the American Revolution.

Book is approximately 4 x 6 inches.

Be sure to see my other listings as I'm always happy to combine shipping on multiple wins!
