Apothecary versus Physician

The Historical Part of Mr. Thomas Hurdman’s Distemper, Of which he Died October the 26th, 1730. Published in Latin by Dr. William Graeme, his First Physician, and now put into English, with some Material and Necessary Remarks and Corrections.

London Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane. 1730. 8vo, [-]1, B-F4, G3, title, 46pp, disbound.
Rather than a translation with some remarks, this is a point by point examination and scathing criticism of the text of Dr. Graeme’s “Historia morbi...”, much of it seemingly concerned with the practice of blood-letting.
