Du Galvanisme Appliqué a la Medecine

Paris: Selligue & Bechet, 1828. First printing. Hardcover. 8vo, dark green contemporary calf gilt over patterned boards, a nearly fine copy. 438 pp. A translation of "On Galvanism: And Its Extraordinary Efficacy In The Cure Of Stomach, Liver, Nervous, And Other Disorders Of Long Continuance" with additional notes and texts. Also interesting for its inclusion of notes by Fabré-Palaprat: he presented a neo-Templar order called l'Ordre du Temple in 1804 and the Johannite Church in 1812, and proclaimed himself Grand Master of the Templars and Sovereign Pontiff of the Primitive Catholic religion, with claims based on a 14th century text he alleged he discovered in a bookseller's stall in Paris: a true madman! Near Fine. Item #H18488
