HEARNE W.G. (WILLIAM GOODALL). - Treatment of Diseases: a short treatise to secure advancement in the science of medicine.

Melbourne, printed by Sands & McDougall 1880. Octavo publisher's blindstamped limp cloth (a bit rubbed); 48pp. Some spots and signs of use but a most acceptable copy. Early inscription of Nurse Elaine Evans and small book label of Brian Gandevia - making it one of the copies cited by Ford. ¶ The interesting part of this is the preface, the rest is Hearne's attempt to show medical authority. This little book is Hearne's challenge to the medical establishment: Hearne and whichever real doctor took the bet would each put up a thousand pounds, each treat a thousand patients - diseases set out here - and whoever killed fewer patients would pick up the kitty. Hearne was a manufacturer of patent medicines, later the maker of Hearne's Bronchitis Cure which recently won him a Geelong lane, now named for him. One of his sons became a doctor.
