Lexington: Finnell & Zimmerman, 1837. 12mo, pp. 22, [2]; removed from binding, wrappers wanting; an ink stain on the back of the pamphlet has eaten through the gutter and caused loss of text on the last 6 leaves, pencil equations on blank leaf; fair. Mitchell was a zealous reformer of the medical profession and of society at large, earning him a reputation as a "narrow-minded, bigoted, presumptuous, puritanical Presbyterian" (DAB). He served on the faculty of Transylvania University from 1837 to 1849. Wellcome, NLM, Transylvania, Kentucky, Cincinnati History Library and Texas in OCLC. Item #56841
