First published in the mid-eighteenth century, The Old Man's Guide to Health and Longer Life is a lifestyle guide to longevity and good health for old men. Written in an age when the majority of the population didn't live to see their 40th birthday, it provides practical advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle, including sleep and emotional health. Written by experienced physician John Hill, it provides an illuminating insight into the thinking on health and longevity in the mid-eighteenth century, and reveals surprising similarities with modern-day health advice.

Hardback - 80 pages.
