GRAEME, William. Historia morbi Quo nuper mortuus est Thomas Hurdman.

Londini [i.e. London]. Apud T. Warner, ad insigne Aethiopis, in Pater-Noster Row, 1730. First edition.
Quarto. [4], 28pp. With the half-title, woodcut initial and ornaments. Uncut, stitched as issued. Half-title spotted, edges dusty and uncut, slight age browning.
A scarce study, in unsophisticated condition, of the sickness of the 32-year-old Thomas Hurdman, with mention of his daily condition, including pulse, temperature and urine colour. Of the several treatments attempted, a substantial discussion is devoted to phlebotomy, which could not nevertheless prevent Hurdman's tragic demise.

Outside of the British Isles, ESTC locates just two copies in Europe (The Dutch State Library and Warsaw) and two further in North America (Folger and NLM).
