Observations on the Influence of Religion Upon the Health and Physical Welfare of Mankind
Marsh, Capen & Lyon, 1835 - 331 pages
"The first portion of the work, treats of past times, and of religions, and forms of religious worship, that have long since passed from civilized communities.

Other portions of the work are devoted to considerations arising from some of the forms of Christian worship"--Préface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
