First edition in book form. Presentation copy - 'With the author's compliments' in ink on front endpaper, owner bookplate on front paste-down, faint stain to board edges. 1865 Hard Cover. 95,  pp. 8vo. An examination of the health benefits of the Italian climate, written by a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. From the preface: This small volume contains the substance of a short course of lectures, written during the leisure of an involuntary holiday, delivered a few weeks since in the theatre of St. Mary's Hospital, and reported in the 'Lancet.' I rejoice in the opportunity which publication affords of thus again acknowledging my debt of gratitude for the sweet influences of Italian skies, by revising the whole and making it somewhat easier reading. To this end I have broken up the lectures and re-arranged them into subjects, filling up gaps with a little fresh matter.
