London : Charles Knight [etc.], 1832. Small 8vo, 209, (1, ad.) pp. With 3 plates. Original cloth, covers rehinged, a few leaves chipeda good copy. First edition, published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, and intended to educate the working class on matters of health generally and cholera specifically. According to COPAC, “attributed to John Conolly (cf. Goldsmiths' Library)”; Conolly was the most famous physician and alienist of his time (see his lengthy entry in DNB) and it seems more likely that he would have been the editor of this work than the author, as the main authority on cholera at that time was John Parkin, who published a definitive study on cholera in 1832 (see G-M 5105). OCLC records 6 copies. No copy online (1/06) no copy at auction. (Item Id: 5600)
