Boston: Re-Printed for Henry Knox, 1772. 76, [3], [1 blank] pp. Lightly worn, title with some foxing and a fold in lower corner area. Three pages of Knox's books for sale in Boston. Bound in modern marbled paper and cloth. Good+.

One of several 1772 American printings, the first American having issued from Philadelphia in 1771, the year of its first appearance in London. Cadogan's conclusion, that gout was caused by a flawed lifestyle, and his recommendations, which involved diet and exercise, generated both enthusiasm and harsh criticism.
