Object Description: This is possibly the first in a series of five prints demonstrating the stages of illness and, more importantly, how the cure is often more agonizing than the sickness. The series includes: Taking Physick, Gentle Emetic, Brisk–Cathartic, Breathing the Vein, and Charming-well Again. Dr. Philip Syng Physick (1768-1837), the conceivable inspiration behind the print, was an American physician who studied under John Hunter in London in the 1790s.
