Words of wisdom from 1878

April 1, 2009

I’ve been looking at our shelves of donated books to determine if any are worthy of adding to our rare book collection.  I found one I just can’t resist.

Tuke, Damiel Hack M.D, Insanity in ancient and modern life, with chapters on its prevention. London: Macmillan, 1878.

Of course I went directly to the chapters on prevention.

  • Importance of cheerfulness, sufficient mental rest, etc.
  • Importance of diet [moderation of diet  and temperance is recommended.

There you have it. Go forth and be sane!
