This is the published version of an address to the Accademia delle Scienze in Parigi on the treatment and cure of Asiatic Cholera. In his introduction, Rogatis surveys the 1854 Italian epidemic and proposes his own method as the best preventative treatment. The subsequent section reviews methods of controlling the epidemics of 1849 and 1854 by way of three sections: spontaneous preservation, active preservation and direct intervention, in which Rogatis promotes the use of copper salts. He reviews Doctor Burq with regard to the treatment of cholera and concludes with his view as to why the copper cure is preferable to all others. OCLC locates 1 copy (university of Leiden).
