The first English translation of Tissot's work was published in 1765, and its immediate popularity documented an increasing awareness by a growing middle-class population of health matters. Tissot (1728 - 1797), a Swiss general practitioner, published his work in 1761. Two years earlier, he had published L'Onanisme, about the dangers of masturbation. (Book ref. 5792 )  £ 150.00
