George G.Harrap & Company, 1950, Red Cloth, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, First Edition
gilt titles spine; "this book is a guide for those who wish to know the meaning of medical words, with special articles on the more important subjects included under the term Medicine. Contributors are many & distinguished in their fields (e.g. Alexander Fleming on antibiotics) To cover all diseases, to include every term which has been introduced into text-books on Medicine, would be impossible in a book of this size. It is therefore selective and not inclusive; nevertheless, most of the terms in general use in Medicine, and those the meaning of which may be obscure, have been defined and the more important diseases and disorders described. It is hoped that medical men may find it a useful book to refer to, & that others, medical students, nurses, pharmacists, technicians - in fact, all who wish to know the meaning of medlcal terms in everyday use - will have in their hands a book they can readily consult"; some wear to edges & corners plus fading of titles on spine; including index - 416 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Reference; Medical Guide; Medicine & Health. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request.
