Cole enjoyed in his day great repute as a medical writer; Sydenham speaks of him with respect, and Haller called him ‘iatromathematicus et hypothesium inventor’. He is considered the most important representative of the iatrochemical school in England before the time of Boerhaave. In the present work, though his theories are somewhat wild, in practice he advocates to the use of “Peruvian bark” i.e. quinine.
