FIRST EDITION. 12 mo. Contemp. sheep. 216 pp. A bit worn; but, generally, a very good copy. Physician and citizen of Rochester, Monroe County, N.Y., is the way John G. Vought, author of this early Rochester medical book, identifies himself on the title. His lengthy dedications are several: to the medical subscribers, to the married ladies of the U.S.A. (a contemporary ownership signature on the title is of a Mary Taber), and to Thomas Mumford, Esq. of Cayuga (Vought's father-in-law). Vought thoroughly reviews the medical literature on bowel complaints and presents many specific cures. He reports his own experiments from 1771 on the common earth-worm to ascertain the anthelmintic virtues of a variety of substances (pp. 144-151). Pages 257-178 are recipes useful to families. A detailed advertisement for 'Dr. Vought's Chemical Anti-dysenteric Medicine', and two other remedies, along with a long list of the name and location (mainly N.Y.S. but including Penn., Baltimore, New Orleans, Virginia, Savannah, Ohio, N.J., etc.) of agents (druggists and booksellers) appear on pages 209 to 216. In 1829 Vought published a brief pamphlet announcing the availability of prescriptions at the New York Infirmary for Diseases of the Bowels removed to Masonic Hall, opposite the New York Hospital.
