THE MONTHLY CYCLOPAEDIA OF PRACTICAL MEDICINE and Universal Medical Journal

By Sajous (Editor)

This is a bound volume of monthly issues of a 100 + year old medical journal. NOTE: The owner would have received these monthly, preserved them, and then taken them to the binder to be made into a book. However, for some reason, the issue for NOVEMBER is not included in the volume. There is a total of 448pp with that issue not present. The editor excepted medicine-related articles from all over the world. There is much of historical interest here - many quaint notions about illnesses and treatment.. 1st Edition. Hardcover.

There is a great deal of historical interest. So much was unknown at the time, one gets the feeling from reading these articles that the doctors were feeling their way in the dark.. 1st Edition.
