Observations on the fifth report of the Commissioners of Military Enquiry. And more particularly on those parts of it which relate to the Surgeon General. By Thomas Keate, Esquire, F.R.S. ...
London: printed for J. Hatchard, 1808.
[8], 160, [76] p. ; 26.2 cm. (4°)

Thomas Keate was inspector of regimental infirmaries until 1798 when he was appointed surgeon-general to the army. He was also surgeon to Chelsea Hospital, where Soane was surveyor of works from 1807. The Fifth Report of the Commissioners of Military Enquiry had censured the medical board and unjustly blamed Keate for various irregularities and waste, eventually retiring him with a small pension. Further papers by Keate defending his conduct of his duties were published in 1809 (q.v.) and 1810 (q.v.).

Binding Original C19th printed blue paper boards wrongly giving the date of publication as '1800', spine without lettering.

Reference Number 5887
