By W. M. Meyer and also published by W. M. Meyer Co. 1936 (ninth edition) " A textbook on cosmetology with special reference to the employment of electricity in the care of the hair, scalp and face"

Book is Red embossed Leatherette cover with gold title and design. Cover in good condition with minimal wear/ rubbing on some corners and edges on spine. quite good shape for its 78 years!

Binding and spine quite good, Book approx 5 1/2" by 8"

Pages very good smooth and glossy with only minimal yellowing, not much concidering its age. No bookplates but there are a few areas with a couple pencil notations ( this was a teaching book). also an area on 1st couple pages where pencil was erased, but not very noticeable.

Book is filled with many b/w photos of various beauty techniques ( AKA torture) and the equipment they used to make you more beautiful. Total approx 420 pages.

Contents include but not limited to: Glands of the body, Histology of the skin, Skin diseases, Scalp treatments, electrolysis, Electricity, Galvanic Current, Faradic Current, Lamps for facial and scalp, sun aero hair dryer, vapor / steam generator, and so much more. Fascinating and a bit scary vintage beauty treament book.

Difficult to find book, have seen listed elsewhere for up to $150.00
