Vienna & Prague:: Franz Haas. 1797-8. hardcover. 1. 2 volumes in 1. 8vo. (183 x 113 mm) xvi, 212; [2], ii, 237, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece. Early half calf over speckled boards, tan calf label, gilt-ruled and stamped spine; extremities rubbed, slight crease to corner of front board. Fine. . Rare Viennese edition, with an imprint citing the same year as what is normally considered the first edition showing an imprint of Jena, 1797. The title-page has a quotation by Goethe. Becoming one of the most successful popular medical writings of the 19th century, this edition may be pirated, likely preceding the 1798 edition, which is generally considered the true second edition. Later editions are entitled Makrobiotik: oder die Kunst das menschliche Leben zu Verlangern, by which the work is generally remembered. "The greatest exponent of prolongevity hygiene, next to Cornaro, was the illustrious German physician Christopher Hufeland, who set the human life span at two hundred years" [Gruman]. -- Hufeland cites the case of Thomas Parr, "whose body was opened in his 152nd year, [proving] that even at this age, the state of the bowels may be so perfect and sound that one might certainly live some time longer." He then cites von Haller, who had collected statistics on longevity. Haller and Hufeland reason that, as an animal lives eight times as long as its period of growth, so too man, "in his natural state" should be able to live eight times the 25 years it takes him to grow. Temperance was paramount, he insisted, and he suggested that the body is born with a limited amount of "vital power," which may be consumed in accordance with one's lifestyle. The "hygienic elite" are working people who live simply in open air. BM Readex Vol. 12, p. 826 (Jena Ed.); Osler 3017 (English Ed.); Wellcome III, p. 310 (Jena Ed.).

Listening to the Animals: Becoming The SupervetListening to the Animals: Becoming The Supervet
A powerful, heart-warming and inspiring memoir from the UK's most famous and beloved vet, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick - star of the Channel 4 series The Supervet.Growing up on the family farm in Ballyfin, Ireland, Noel's childhood was spent tending to the cattle and sheep, the hay and silage, the tractors and land, his beloved sheepdog Pirate providing solace from the bullies that plagued him at school. It was this bond with Pirate, and a fateful night spent desperately trying to save a newborn lamb, that inspired Noel to enter the world of veterinary science - and set him on the path to becoming The Supervet.Now, in this long-awaited memoir, Noel recounts this often-surprising journey that sees him leaving behind a farm animal practice in rural Ireland to set up Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey, one of the most advanced small animal specialist centres in the world. We meet the animals that paved the way, from calving cows and corralling bullocks to talkative parrots and bionic cats and dogs.Noel has listened to the many lessons that the animals in his care have taught him, and especially the times he has shared with his beloved Keira, the scruffy Border Terrier who has been by Noel's side as he's dealt with the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of his extraordinary career.As heart-warming and life-affirming as the TV show with which he made his name, Listening to the Animals is a story of love, hope and compassion, and about rejoicing in the bond between humans and animals that makes us the very best we can be.Publisher: Orion Publishing Co ISBN: 9781409183747
