A view of the science of life, on the principles established in The elements of medicine, of the late celebrated John Brown, M.D. : with an attempt to correct some important errors of that work, and cases in illustration, chiefly selected from the records of their practice, at the General Hospital, at Calcutta by William Yates, & Charles Maclean. To which is subjoined, A treatise on the action of mercury upon living bodies, and its application for the cure of diseases of indirect debility. And A dissertation on the source of epidemic and pestilential diseases; in which is attempted to prove, by a numerous induction of facts, that they never arise from contagion, but are always produced by certain states, or certain vicissitudes of the atmosphere
