A Clinical Atlas of Venereal & Skin Diseases(including Diagnosis, Prognosis & Treatment) by Robert W. Taylor, A.M., M.D., was published by Lea Brothers & Co., Philadelphia, in 1889. Not an ex-library copy, this approximately 13" X 17 1/2", 427-page, 122-year-old vintage offering is in G condition. The pages have, naturally, yellowed modestly, and a fair number of this offering's pages exhibit smallish, random tears at the top, bottom, or outer edges of same. I did nothing in the way of taping even one of these minor tears on any of the pages. The next owner can determine whether it's even necessary or useful to do so. There is random, spotty "scuffing" observed on the volume's spine, and the leather covering on the front and back cover boards fairly shouts I'M QUITE BRITTLE, AND I'LL PROVE IT IF YOU DON'T HANDLE ME WITH CARE! The leather on the back cover board is beginning to curl away from the length of cloth that it meets up with, 2" from the right edge of same. Again, I have applied no tape to try to repair/remedy the flaw, though some glue was applied to prevent further "curling". The front loose end page, and the blank page immediately following same, have noticeable vertical creases running their entire length. Said blank page is signed by a/the previous owner, and dated Feb. 18, 1894. From Dr. Taylor's Preface, "In preparing this work I have aimed to present to the eye as well as the mind our most recent knowledge of the diagnosis and treatment of Venereal and Skin Diseases. For the accomplishment of this purpose I have adopted the plan of an Atlas, in which the plates, imitating nature as closely as possible in form, size, and color, should be accompanied by an illustrated text simple and clear in explanation and abounding in therapeutical suggestions." THE MOST ALLURING, RATHER REMARKABLE HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS OFFERING are the 58 full color plates, showing a total of 213 figures, as many as possible drawn life-size, the leading design being to provide a series illustrating the successive stages of typical diseases. There are, in addition, some 85 woodcuts throughout the text intended to provide further assistance to the reader in understanding points discussed within same. Also included are Table of Contents, List of Colored Plates(And Their Sources), List of Woodcuts(And Their Sources), and an extremely extensive Index(some 7 pages long). Presented in eight parts, the volume is generally divided, as you might surmise, into "Venereal Diseases" and "Diseases of the Skin". Taylor was a leader in dermatological treatment in his day, a president of the American Dermatological Association, . . . and this book HAS to be one of the very first of its kind. What a gift, to yourself or a loved one, this late-nineteenth century Treatise on many of the diseases and maladies that were considered unspeakably horrific in their day would be to, say, a modern-day, practicing surgeon, or dermatologist, or pathologist--indeed, any physician involved in helping individuals confront, and conquer, the diseases addressed, many of which are still prevalent today. Having the book rebound would add immensely to the value of the book. Due to the dimensions and bulk of this particular volume, SHIPPING THIS OFFERING OUTSIDE THE U.S. WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
