Comments On Corpulency

Modeled after the National Library of Medicine’s “Turning the Pages” project, the Eskind Biomedical Library presents this virtual 1st volume of a 4-volume edition of William Wadd's 1829 work, Comments on Corpulency. This particular edition is annotated with period illustrations from the early 18th century to 1901 by English lawyer, author, and book collector A.M. Broadley. This book is a valuable resource in the study of obesity and social attitudes of the 18th and 19th centuries and has a unique historical background.
