This work provides information on the spas in Europe. Written by Hermann David Weber, a German physician. He studied and practiced medicine in England, and conducted pioneering work on the open-air treatment of consumption, for which Weber was knighted. Also written by Frederick Parkes Weber, the son of Hermann. Frederick was a dermatologist who contributed many articles to medical publications over a period of fifty years.
