"A Treatise on the Prevention and Cure of Disease; Not Intended to Take the Place of the Family Physician, but to Aid the Reader in Cooperating With Him Intelligently."

Published in 1943, this heavyweight tome (over 4 lbs!) covered all a person needed to know about good health in the early 20th century. 77 Chapters of medical info. All that you'd expect ~ first aid & chapters on all the body's systems & the problems associated with them ~ plus chapters on "Religion & Health","The Ministry of the Physician", "Home Hygiene & Sanitation". "The Home Sanitarium", "Foods" & "Disease and Health in the Tropics". 33 pages of full color plates. Black & white illustrations throughout. When you consider the time frame, this makes for some very interesting reading :)

The book is in good condition.There are a few paint (?) stains on the front cover & the outside spine is crimped. Someone wrote some notes in the front cover & pasted a sticker inside the back cover. Age-toning to the pages. All the same, the guide remains a very cool look into the past.

Shipping rates apply to the continental US. (Convo me for elsewhere) Your book will be mailed USPS Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Average delivery...1-2 weeks.
