From Henry's preface, "To the practitioner the minute details of treatment will be of especial interest and value; whie the numerous formulae (including about two hundred) afford a liberal choice in the management of these afflictions."

Of interest in this particular copy is the light green printed bookseller label [1-1/2" x 1-11/16"] for "F. R. Wetmore & Co., / Booksellers / and / Stationers. / Yokohama, Japan" giving rise to the speculation that this English bookseller in Japan [Yokohama was not opened to foreign trade until 1859] would stock this title for visiting Western naval personnel, who battled the spread of venereal disease amongst their crew.
