The Botanic Physician” by A.H. Mathes is a rare early American medical book, written as a book of family medicine, human anatomy and physiology, and principles of hygiene. It should be noted that this work claims to have found the cure for cancer – simple – just take the ashes from burnt oak, make a plaster, and apply it to the body until “you judge [the cancer] to be killed”.

 

While the medical information in this book is important, the real draw of this work is that was one of the earliest family medical works published in Tennessee.
