How it works


Subtitled "A Manual of Liar Dice and Taurocoprology (ie.bullshit)". Compiled by the Officers of the No. 5 S.A. General Hospital. 4to. 116pp. In the original orange cloth with a black impressed bull on the front board. A light hearted anthology of humorous and satirical pieces by many famous South African doctors and surgeons of the time including the likes of Professor Guy Elliott, Dr Isidor Kaplan and Dr. Pericles Menof. One of the preliminary pages states "Special Presentation Copy with the Compliments of the Authors". A very good copy of this unusual item stemming from Medical Officers in the Second World War and almost certainly published in a very small edition.
