53 Gaertner, Gustav Reducing Weight Comfortably; the Dietetic Treatment of Obesity
Philadelphia, Pa. Lippincott 1914 First Edition Hard cover Good+ 
8vo 8" - 9" tall; 313 pages; Rare early diet book-1914 medically informed study of dietary and exercise methods for reducing weight. Found in only a handful of scholarly and specialist libraries, this is a rare early "diet book" that hews closely to observable facts and the actual results of the author's medically formed treatment/diets. In original ribbed blue cloth with ruling in blind to boards and titles in gilt to spine, a little rubbed and dulled. Rear board has some moderate splotchy spill stain and superficial surface rubbing. Binding is sound and contents clean; no marks. A solid copy. Gaertner was a well regarded Austrian physician and pathologist who made study of nutrition a special interest. He is credited with a number of medical innovations. His treatment of obesity acknowledged the varying ability of different physical types to metabolize caloric intake and his suggestions for diet included elements of a physical regimen. He expresses disdain for quack methods and purgative, low water intake methods. As such, his book-which reads more as a medical text, than a diet book, per se is one of the first modern books to prescribe specific methods of dieting in a substantial and effective manner. An important book in the field of diet and nutrition. Exceptionally uncommon. This copy G+ to VG-[The English language translation of the author's Dia Tetische entfettungskuren [1913], published originally in Leipzig, Germany. ]

59 Good, Peter P. The Family Flora and Materia Medica Botanica, [Vol I only (of II)]; Containing the Botanical Analysis, Natural History, and Chemical and Medical Properties and Uses of Plants.
Cambridge, MA Peter P. Good, (Self-Published) 1854 Revised Expanded Edition Hardcover Good 
Hand colored lithographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 1854 Peter P. Good, (Self-Published). HC Vol I only of the revised and exapanded edition which doubled the number of color plates of the earlier 1945 edition. Text and plates complete with 48 tissue guarded, hand colored lithographs of botanical specimens. Front board detached; spine cloth missing in entirety. Plate # 11 damaged with two small oval pieces cut from the plate. Most tissue guards served as a practice template for a young hand to practice tracing with outlines of the flowers in pencil - somethimes shaded in by pencil. To be clear these pencil doodles are on the tissue guards and not the plates. Paged with lv pp of introduction and glossary followed by 48 sections of 4 printed pages, a blank sheet and a handcolored plate - detailing 48 botanical specimens. [10] pp of ads at rear include an engraved portrait of the author, again with a pencil defaces tissue guard. Here and there some light spotting and soiling; a few instances of shallow crescent shaped damp lines to the edge of a slim section of pages. Externally rough but textually complete. A candidate for rebacking and restoration. Good only thus.
