Woodcut frontispiece and illustrations. Hoolihan 3034: Ross's manual of hygiene was first published at New York in 1849 under the title: Golden rules of health. A much expanded 2nd edition was published at Auburn, N.Y. in 1851 as Hints and helps to health and happiness. The book's final publication appears to have been the 5th edition published at Dayton, Ohio in 1856. The book's publishing history may well chronicle its author's westward migrations.
