by Venner, Tobias
London: Printed By R. Bishop for Henry Hood, 1637. Hard Cover. Very Good. Small Octavo. 11 leaves, title page plus pages 345 - 364, printed on laid paper; 18th century binding of half leather over marbled boards. Light age-toning to text, but very good. One of the earliest works on tobacco and smoking. Tobias Venner (1577-1660) was a prominent physician in Bath and several other cities. He clearly intended for this work to outline the harmful effects of tobacco on the human body. Venner further opines that if tobacco is taken in a medicinal way, can for the time, "expell melancholie, and excite lumpish spirites." First printed by William Jaggard in 1627 and appended to Venner's "Via Recta ad Vitam Longam" beginning with the 4th edition of that work, which was printed in 1637. The present volume is from that work and is complete in itself and has its own title page. (Inventory #: 7690)
