How it may be compared to a political city, in relation to the various offices of its parts; and their mutual dependance upon, and subserviency to each other. The state thereof analogically considered, whether aristocratic, or oligarchic: Together with the proper remedies both for reducing it to, and preserving it in a due state. In the second is explained the various processes of the blood,how it nourisheth the parts, how infected, and what diseases are contagious. As also a compleat treatise of cancers and gangreens, with an enquiry whether they have any alliance with contagious diseases
