The Eastern or Turkish Bath - Erasmus Wilson, F.R.S.

1861 - John Churchill, London - First Edition
An interesting little work by the English surgeon and dermatologist Sir Erasmus Wilson (1809-84), for whom we can owe in great measure the habit of a daily bath. In 1869 he founded the chair and museum of dermatology in the Royal College of Surgeons, of which he was chosen president in 1881. Wilson also paid to bring the landmark Egyptian obelisk to London, after the Government refused to do so citing high transport costs.

With seven engravings in the introduction.
