Theory and Treatment of Fevers.
SAPPINGTON, John. The Theory and Treatment of Fevers . Revised and Corrected by Ferdinando Stith, M.D. Arrow Rock, [MO]: Published by the Author, 1844. 216 pp. Orig. full calf. Some wear to spine ends and corners, else a very good copy. Sabin 76989. Cordasco 40-1154. The first edition of the first medical text printed in English west of the Mississippi River. Although the title page infers that this is a later edition, it is the only edition listed in any of the standard references, including the NUC. Sappington moved to Missouri in 1817 after studying medicine with his father, a physician in Tennessee, and attending medical lectures at the University of Pennsylvania. "Sappington's life may be said to have been devoted to the cause of quinine. In the early development of the Southern and Western states, malaria was so prevalent that it was one of the greatest obstacles with which th early settlers had to contend. Soon after quinine (isolated from the Peruvian bark in 1820) became available in the United States, Sappington recognized its specific nature in the treatment of malaria, and strongly advocated its use. . In [The Theory and Treatment of fevers] he gave in detail his method of preparing his quinine-containing pills [which he distributed wholesale] and advocated quinine, properly used, as the only thing necessary to cure malaria."--DAB.
