The second volume of Burton's masterful work, The Anatomy of Melancholy, this edition includes the text and textual apparatus for "The Second Partition." Burton furnishes the full spectrum of cures for melancholy, outlining and analyzing the symptoms and causes of the disorder in the same format as in the first partition. In the "Digression of the Ayre," he presents a remarkable synthesis of the cultural, geographical, and climatic influences on temperament, and in the final two sections presents extensive remedies from both physics and surgery.
