|General Note:|| Spine title: Medical science frauds.
|Summary, etc.:|| While the subjects of cold and hot baths as therapy are frequently mentioned, this work seems to cover a wide range of topics. As the language of the title suggests, the book undertakes lengthy diatribes against then-current accepted medical practice and particularly against what Kingsley feels to be an unreasonable rejection of all earlier methods, citing numerous cases that would seem to support his views.
