Description:
New York, Cleveland: The World Publishing Company, 1968. Near fine in like dust jacket.. First edition of this Edgar Award-winning medical thriller, the only work Michael Crichton wrote under the Jeffery Hudson pseudonym. The influence of Michael Crichton's time in medical school appears throughout his works, but it is particularly strong in A CASE OF NEED. This socially conscious thriller demonstrates Crichton's familiarity with the various places and personalities that make up a hospital, while using its narrative to make a case for providing safe abortion access. An important early work in Crichton's oeuvre. 8.25'' x 5.5''. Original quarter black cloth, green boards, red spine lettering. Original unclipped ($5.95) color pictorial dust jacket designed by Ken Braken. Black endpapers. 310 pages. Jacket with mild edgewear and tiny bit of chipping. Book with light shelfwear, light sunning to top edge; leaves with occasional spots of soil to margins. Sound and bright.

New York, New York, U.S.A.: E P Dutton, 1993. 1st edition, thus. Originally published in 1968 as by Jeffrey Hudson. An EDGAR AWARD WINNER for Best Novel. Was it murder? Was it horribly botched surgery -- accidental malpractice? Was someone in the great Boston medical center violating the Hippocratic oath? No one knows exactly why the beautiful young daughter of an important medical family bled to death on the operating table. But the doctor she helplessly trusted -- a brilliant, compassionate physician -- is accused of murdering her. And as passions and protests volcanically erupt, only one other doctor is willing to push his way through the mysterious maze of hidden medical data and shocking secrets to learn the truth about a surgical procedure that may have killed her.. First Thus. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.
