System of Ophthalmology Volume VI Ocular Motility and Strabismus

£45.00

Product description

Large, heavy volume. Red cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the spine, covers are in Fine condition. Small owner name on the first free endpaper. Binding is tight. Text is clean and unmarked. There is some light foxing on some of the endpapers and the page edges. The unclipped dust jacket is rather worn and discoloured with stains on the front and spine, short tears at the top and base of the spine and at the folds. Duke-Elder was a Scottish ophthalmologist who was a dominant force in his field for more than a quarter of a century. His seven volumes of "Textbook of Ophthalmology" and fifteen volumes (in nineteen books) of "System of Ophthalmology" provided the educational foundation for most of the world's ophthalmologists. His monumental contribution to medical literature earned him the title of Fellow of the Royal Society in 1960. This is volume VI of Duke-Elder's magnum opus.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
