Dr. John Williams’ Last Legacy, and Useful Family Guide.

New York: Printed for O. Taylor & Co., 1826. A later edition of this popular herbal materia medica; the first appeared in 1811. Removed unbound pamphlet, 6.63 x 4 inches, 23, [1] pages. Some light soiling and toning; a very good copy. Item #20371

A moderately early edition of this popular herbal (it was republished at least through 1842), which owed its enduring popularity in part “to its brevity, the author’s selection of the most common diseases and accidents, the clarity of his recipes, and the availability of the botanicals required” (Atwater). Atwater 3797; American Imprints 27663. This copy lacks the wrappers.

Price: $125.00
