The Natural Mineral Waters of Harrogate

    Article metrics


    DR. SMITH considers the natural waters of Harrogate chemically, therapeutically, and clinically, with reference to their suitability for drinking and bathing purposes. He maintains that the springs of Harrogate compare very favourably with those of Baden-Baden, Homburg and Kissingen, and that there is no need for invalids to run the risk of a journey to the Continent. Full analyses, by trustworthy chemists, are given of all the varieties of mineral waters with which this Yorkshire spa is endowed, and much valuable information concerning the local rainfall, temperature and mortality should cause this well-illustrated volume to take its place as a handy guide for “the doctors of this country,” to whom Dr. Smith dedicates his work.
