by S. Pancoast

A splendid medicine reference book filled with useful hints for the health and well-being of woman. Lavishly illustrated with black & white diagrams and color plates as well as fold-out plates, Pancoast's volume represents a thorough study which renders it not only an invaluable reference guide to knowledge and health, but also an exceptionally detailed work on anatomy and medicine. 660 pages. 5.5 x 8 inches.

Rare Salesman Sample. Lavishly illustrated with black & white diagrams and color plates. Includes elaborate human anatomy illustrations that open to show internal organs, complete with tab lift-ups for a better sense of the anatomy. Complete with tables and statistics at end of volume.
