    This is a really neat document. I have been doing a lot of research on old springs and travel destinations, but I hadn’t found this travel guide yet. Is there anywhere to download a PDF or other version for reading on a mobile device of my choosing? I see that the HathiTrust website allows downloading one page at a time as a PDF, but not the whole thing as a single file. Surely this thing is out-of-copyright, being from 1887.

    Note that the “sulphureted hydrogen” they refer to is hydrogen sulfide, and hence highly toxic (a knockdown killer!)

    I don’t recommend exposing yourself to it as a cure for rheumatism; acetyl salicylate will help much more.
