Including A Commentary upon an Ancient Inscription, in which this great Secret is revealed; supported by numerous Authorities... The Third Edition.
London: Printed for J. Nourse, 1771. 
Octavo, original calf rebacked preserving original spine, original label, viii, 248 pp. Translated by Dr. John Campbell, a friend of Samuel Johnson, and described by him as “very entertaining as an account of the hermetic philosophy and as furnishing a crious history of the extravagancies of the human mind.” Disraeli comments, in Curiosities of Literature, Vol. 1, p320-1, “But the most singular blunder was produced by the ingenious ‘Hermippus Redivivus' of Dr. Campbell, a curious banter on the hermetic philosophy and the universal medicine; but the grave irony is so closely kept up that it deceived for a length of time the most learned. His notions of the art of prolonging life, by inhaling the breath of young women was eagerly credited. A Physician who himself had composed a treatise on health was so influenced by it, that he actually took lodgings at a female boardingin school, that he might never be without a constant supply of the breath of young ladies.”
