Climate and Lung Disease

    Abstract

    THIS work affords valuable information, not otherwise easily attainable, concerning distant health resorts. Modern facilities of locomotion have brought the Andes and the Karoo within easieraccess than Montpelier or Penzance at the beginning of the Victorian era. The world is now at the feet of the health-seeker, and our ocean steamers and trans-continental railways are day by day carrying an ever-increasing number of convalescents. It is not necessary to have a yacht of our own if we would take a trip to the Fiords of Norway, the Grecian Archipelago, the West Indian Islands, or even to Japan; perfectly appointed steamers, with the comforts of a good hotel and the reliableness of an express train, are ever ready to convey us wherever we may desire.

    Aero-Therapeutics; or, the Treatment of Lung Diseases by Climate.
