Unterricht über die Erkenntniß, die erste Behandlung und die Verhütung der epidemischen Cholera für Nichtärzte. Bekannt gemacht durch die Central-Commission zur Abwehrung der Cholera ain Detmold.
Very rare, seemingly unrecorded, guide for lay people to the identification, initial treatment, and prevention of cholera, published at the height of the European pandemic of 1831-2 in the Westfalia town of Lemgo. The five sections deal with the diagnosis and symptoms of the disease, its treatment, preventive measures (including advice on diet and regimen), the prevention of contagion, and finally a list of the objects that every household should have during an outbreak, including woollen blankets, clean hand towels, a bottle of good wine, and camomile tea.

[PLUCHE, Noël-Antoine,] and Samuel HUMPHREYS (translator).
Spectacle de la nature, or Nature display’d, being Discourses on such Particulars of natural History as were thought most proper to excite the Curiosity and form the Minds of Youth, illustrated with Copper Plates … translated from the original French … the eighth [– fourth; – third] Edition, revised [– revis’d] and corrected.
Scarce ‘eighth edition’ of Pluche’s encyclopaedic discourses on man and nature. ‘Well known by the educated public, the work played an important role in the education of children of wealthy families and was sometimes even used as a textbook of natural science. Le spectacle is explicitly didactic, and for a time Pluche had even thought of calling it “La physique des enfants”. Composed mainly in the form of dialogues between a young nobleman, his parents, and a prior, it is an idealization of Pluche’s activities as tutor to the Stafford family.’ (DSB).
