Institutes or, Principles of health. Shewing from reason, experience, and from the examples of several great men of antiquity; that to prevent disease is more eligible and easy than to cure them; prevention being is every man's power without the advice or expence of a physician. For as the poet hatch it. Health is a jewel rich, which when we buy physicians value it accordingly. Written by a friend to mankind.
