Guernsey's Homeopathic Domestic Practice

£29.99

Product description

Guernsey's Homeopathic Domestic Practice - Egbert Guernsey
New York: Boericke & Tafel. Ninth enlarged, revised and improved edition 1872. pp 653.

Dimpled chestnut boards, marked and faded in places, half bound to spine in chestnut calf.
The splendid spine is suitably distressed with six raised bands and gilt titles in four different fonts. Four of the panels are embossed with circular designs.

Top and tail of spine are fraying but still excellent and the defects only add to the appeal of this book.
There have been at least two owners: L.B. Lennox signed the end paper in 1874 and Betty Broadbent signed the title page when she was in Port Said, Egypt.
Possible worming to base of title page (2 x 2 cms.)
Inner hinges cracking but very good.

Betty glued a few health-related newspaper articles into the ffeps, partially concealing L.B.L.'s handiwork.

All pages tanned and wonderful: discussing the gruesome symptoms encountered in the Victorian patient. On p216 there is an account of the author's letting off a pistol in the dead of night in order to cure a dementia patient.
A nice volume that looks very good.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
