Item description for On the Treatment And Management of the More Common West-india Diseases, 1750-1862 by J. Edward Hutson...
This work bring together in one volume a number of late-eighteenth-century monographs (the period known as the Age of Reason) on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in African and creole slaves in the English-speaking Caribbean. These works have been almost forgotten, but they are of importance to many scholars, and Hutson provides a fully annotated text which explains archaic terminology, makes medical, botanical and Latin terminology accessible to non-specialists in those fields, and provides useful explanations of the eighteenth-century medical concepts.
