A History of Wine as Therapy.
by [Wine Therapy] Lucia, M.D., Salvatore P.

Publisher Information:
Lippincott, Philadelphia: 1963.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. A History of Wine As Therapy. is Dr. Lucia's excellent review of the history of medicine with which wine is intimately mixed. The oldest of medicines, Egyptian medicine, is believed to have used wine therapeutically long before the oldest known inscription depicting winemaking which is dated c. 4000 BC. The oldest physically preserved record of wine in medicine is that inscribed in Sumerian cuneiform excavated from the ruins of Nippur, south of the supposed site of Babylon. Vedic medicine in ancient India dates from 2500 BC. Indian medicine developed independently of that in Egypt and Sumer and antedated that of Greece. The use of fermented beverages by the Hindus represents a unique chapter in the history of wine as a therapeutic agent. And so on through recorded history until the final chapter summarizes the pharmacology as studied up to the 1960s..
