gilt titles spine; signed on the front endpaper; "twenty years ago, Alistair Cooke was invited to deliver the annual Convocation Address of the Mayo Clinic. He chose to speak about medicine from a layman's point of view. This now famous lecture brought invitations from other distinguished medical bodies, as also from other professional associations: of architects, lawyers, the US Military Academy at West Point, Cambridge University, and not least the US House of Representatives (on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the meeting of the first Continental - i.e. revolutionary - Congress). These lectures are collected here as essays in what Cooke calls 'the journalist's main function: to be the link of communication between the expert and the layman'. But he has chosen only those speeches in which the layman is talking back - so to speak - to the College of Cardinals. They consequently bear the title of the Mayo lecture: The Patient Has the Floor. Other lecture titles here include: Hypochondria: the Layman's Speciality; Staying Alive in 1776; Thoughts Coming Out of the Ether; & Doctor & Patient: Face to Face."; as-new copy in a price-intact D/J., 205 pages Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
