On offer is a very interesting circa 1840s notebook of James Lee, a pro-Temperance, likely English physician who has in his book written a speech called "The Physiological Action of Alcohol" and an essay called "At the North Pole" which may or may not be based on his first hand knowledge; 70 pages and 56 pages respectively. The essay is a vast description of the Arctic from the peoples to the formative creations of ice and rock and within the essay he opines and observes his ideas as to the Creator and the making of the vast wilderness to paraphrase. At the back of the premium gilt stamped, marbled edge book is an 8 page section used surgical operations diary, a few cases details of particular fascination are two cases involving poisoning by different methods and the results of treatment and some medicinal recipes. Overall G+.
