HANCOCK, John
[Advertisement]
Hancock's caoutchouc economics, and medical auxiliaries. Sold wholesale and retail at No.229, Strand, near Temple Bar.
[London]: S. Robins, printer, Houghton Street, Clare Market, [1832?].
4 p. ; 22.6 cm. (8°)

Drop-head title. Imprint from p. 4. Hancock prefaces his catalogue of mainly medical and surgical appliances with an assurance that, unlike other nostrums, 'caoutchouc' or india-rubber 'does not operate as a charm', and that he has not therefore been elastic with the truth in his descriptions of its uses.

Copy Notes Bound (and probably distributed) in a copy of the February 1832 issue of The Gentleman's Magazine (q.v., copy 4).

Reference Number 2423
