Two volumes in one. 268, 334,  pages. Fifth edition. The original publication, the title of which translates as The Art of Prolonging Human Life (1979), contains what is considered the first use of the work "macrobiotic" and Hufeland's work on preventative and curative aspects of health made him the father of macrobiotics. With a library bookplate and withdrawn stamp of the Dragnothian Literary Society at Franklin and Marshall College. A bit of staining to preliminaries, otherwise very good in worn and scuffed boards in marbled paper.
