SECOND EDITION, revised and enlarged. First edition, Amsterdam, 1759. English translation, Philadelphia, 1805, by Charles Caldwell. This is Senac's valuable treatise on the nature and treatment of intermitting and remitting fevers. Jean Baptiste Senac was an eminent French physician who wrote numerous books and papers on various aspects of anatomy, physiology and medicine. His works, according to Dr. Ferguson, "were distinguished alike by erudition and by great literary skill and taste." He is probably best remembered for his classic work on the structure of the heart. Blake, NLM, p. 414. See: Ferguson, Bibliotheca chemica, II, p. 363. First Edition.
