This incredible antique book contains extensive medical and medicinal information adapted for "home and family use", with interesting illustrations throughout. (It's the one on the left in the photo.) Two pages have layered illustrations, one of the head, the other of the internal organs. There's some unusual outdated practices outlined in the book, such as the benefits of sun baths, and other equally crazy ideas. It's truly fascinating!

It's bound in leather, the spine is intact, although coming loose at the bottom. The top of the spine is in rough shape, and some of the fold-out manikin's parts are detatched, but not ripped. Cover shows wear, but still a wonderful book! Copyright, 1909, 973 pages. Measures 9 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 3 5/8".

Any shipping over-charge more than 2 dollars will automatically be reimbursed through pay pal.
