An early work on health consciousness, healthy lifestyle and general well-being through advices on personal cleanliness, exercises and rest, food, drink and spices. Willich’s very popular manual was based on a series of lecture given by the eminent physician at Bath in 1798, and includes material on the state of modern medicine, the air, baths, clothing, exercise, sleep, excretion, sexual intercourse, the mind and the eyes, as well as a long chapter on food and drink with descriptions of the nature and properties of various comestibles. A postscript explains that this work dealing with the preservation of the healthy body is to be followed by one on the treatment of the diseased body, and includes a list of questions to ask a patient to aid in diagnosis.
