FIRST EDITION of Hitchcock's guide to healthy living. Dyspepsy Forestalled & Resisted was not "written for confirmed invalids, making it its great object to describe with minute particularity all the ever-varying sufferings of nervous complaints, and to prescribe medicines for their cure; but it is an attempt to point out to the whole community of students, their duties in respect to their bodily system. An intelligent librarian might place it, not among medical books, but in the alcove devoted to moral philosophy. In fact if, in a system of instructions on this last named subject, the duties which arise from our connection with a corporeal frame, was made one grand division, this treatise would ably and fully cover the ground" (AJECR, p. 299).
