About this work
The hypochondriac ... Lettering continues: The Mind distemper'd - say, what potent charm, /Can Fancy's spectre - brooding rage disarm? / Physics prescriptive, art assails in vain,/ The dreadful phantoms floating 'cross the brain!/ Until with Esculapian skill, the sage M.D./ Finds out at length by self-taught palmistry,/ The hopeless case - in the reluctant fee:/ Then, not in torture such a wretch to keep,/ One pitying bolus lays him sound a sleep! Design'd by James Dunthorne. Etch'd by T. Rowlandson.
