Author John, Gabriel.

Title Flagellum: or, a dry answer to Dr. Hancock's wonderfully-comical liquid book : which he merrily calls Febrifugum magnum, or common water the best cure for fevers, &c. (a Book proved beyond Contradiction, to be wrote when the Doctor was asleep.) Wherein, Not only many obscure Passages, in that great Performance (which neither the Doctor nor any body else understood the meaning of) are ironically explain'd to the meanest Capacity; but the Use and Excellency of cold Water and stewed Prunes, is also clear'd up, beyond Contradiction. Very fit to be bound up with the Doctor's Book. By Gabriel John, a seventh son, and teacher of the occult sciences in Yorkshire.

Published London : printed, and sold by Tho. Warner at the Black-Boy in Pater-Noster-Row, [1723]
