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
