7 p.l., 191,  pp. 8vo, cont. mottled calf (some light browning), spine richly gilt. London: R.N. for W. Kettilby, 1676.
First edition of an uncommon book. Goodall (1642-1712), was admitted to the College of Physicians as a candidate in 1676 and eventually became president from 1708 until his death. Early in 1676, Goodall published the present book which "is a reply to an attack on the college by Adrian Hyberts, and proves three points: that the College of Physicians was legally established, that it exercised its rights justly, and that it had advanced medical learning in England. The illustrations in support of the last show Goodall to have been well read in the science of his time."D.N.B., VIII, p. 114.
Nice and pretty copy.
