Comments On Corpulency

Modeled after the National Library of Medicine's "Turning the Pages" project, the Eskind Biomedical Library's Turning the Pages project presents two digitized volumes of a unique 4-volume edition of William Wadd's 1829 Comments on Corpulency. These volumes, annotated with period illustrations and texts by English lawyer, author, and book collector A.M. Broadley, are an invaluable resource in the study of obesity and social attitudes of the 18th and 19th centuries.
