CLELAND,HENRY WILSON
ON THE HISTORY AND PROPERTIES CHEMICAL AND MEDICAL OF TOBACCO a probationary essay presented to the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow

Quarto semi-limp full morocco leather blind tooled & gilt titled (foot of spine sl.damaged for 1cm/tips rubbed) All Edges Gilt 68pp. Cleland family copy with signature of James Dennistown Cleland on margin of TP and A.R. Dick Cleland 1882 on FEP. Small news cutting tipped onto FEP re tobacco. First & last leaf sl.foxed and the 2 leaves of "explication of the plate" & the De Bry plate have text & plate printed on India paper & mounted on stiffish mounts. These mounts show marginal damp mark not affecting the India paper. *Plates "on India" are often "special" copies of books, issued for more discerning customers at a higher price, as the India paper takes a crisper, better ink impression than printing on ordinary paper. An interesting paper delivered by Dr.Cleland, a lecturer on Mecical Jurisprudence in the School of Medicine in submission as a candidate for admission to the faculty of Physicians & Surgeons. Also includes a good bibliography on tobacco (cf. Wellcome 11, p.357 which lacks the final page).
