This 1008 page medical bible, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers original binding. Said binding being handsomely black embossed pebbled cloth . Binding is rock solid, clean, and tight, save for a sparation at the front hinge but in no way a detachment. However, though the main body of the page block is rock solid, the first two pages and the last two are detached but are in fine shape and would be easilt reattached by the next guardian of this publication. Inside you'll discover a really impressive and stately frontispiece portrait of the author, ifive color plates, with a total of 32 figures, 312 other figures, many full-page, and numerous tables in the text. This scarce revised 40th edition is not in Cordasco, who does cite the first, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 30th, 72nd, and 77th editions.Corners not at all bumped. A very good copy of this watershed publication. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest, this book does have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Wow! Almost forgot to mention it. As a totally special bonus, this has a totally mint form "Application for Treatment" laid in. But don't fill it out and mail it to the address show, for there is not only no zip code, but also no zone number. This virgin 116 year old application for medical treatment at Pierce's World Dispensary is worth it weight in bibliophilac-gold. Size: Large 12mo. N° de ref. de la librería 006425
