Manchester Evening Chronicle Household Medical Adviser

Product description

Published circa 1900 by Hulton: Manchester. Dark green cloth boards, decorated with raised colour illustration to front & spine, with floral endpapers. Illustrated publisher's binding: front cover shows a nurse posed as Hygeia, administering to a man with a head wound. Covers are very age-darkened. Corners are bumped and there is some wear to edges. Binding is intact but a little loose. Inside pages are darkening near the edges. Otherwise this reference book is in reasonable condition.

This book describes itself as "A complete, popular-scientific work of reference. How to avoid illness, and how to prescribe for and treat all classes of ailments & diseases. Compiled from the most recent recognised system of prevention and cure."

Contains over 320 illustrations, including 33 half-tone illustrations (16 in colour, 17 in black and white), a folded leaf at end with 5 anatomic models, and 1 anatomic model affixed to rear pastedown. Models depict the male and female anatomy, and closer examinations of the ear, eye, nose, and lungs. NB Some parts of these models may be missing or have become detached.

This book would make a great present for someone who works in the health service or is one of the 'worried well'. It's a useful reminder of how much better off we are today in the UK.
