How it works


The spine has tears and chips and is rubbed at the joins but the full-leather tooled covers and binding generally remain good. Marbled endpapers. The leaves up to the title page are starting to come away from the binding. The tissue protection to the frontispiece (of Dr Kellogg) has been mainly removed. This massive (3.5 kg) tome has some 1675 pages, all present, more than 500 illustrations in the text and 35 plates, half of them coloured. Although all the plates are present, there are one or two transpositions. There is a little foxing front and back, but overall this is a good, unmarked copy of one of the more famous household medical guides of the nineteenth century.
