About this Item

A full-spectrum presentation of medical science as it was in the early 1900s. Edited by Sir William Osler, often considered the father of modern medicine. Each volume contains approximately 900 pages and an index. Volumes I through III printed in 1907, volumes IV and V in 1908, volume VI in 1909 and volume VII in 1910. Numerous colour and black and white plates. Black and white diagrams. Full leather bindings. Two maroon labels with gilt lettering upon each backstrip. Each volume approximately 10" high by 7" wide by 2.75" thick. Of particular note are eight graphic full-page time-lapse photos illustrating the progressive ravages of smallpox upon a middle-aged man, and his appearance after recovery. All bindings stout and strong. Hairline opening along front hinge of volume I. Underlining on relatively few pages in light ink and pencil. Two volumes unmarked. Minimal marginalia on only a handful of pages. Minor evidence of moisture exposure to part of fore-edge of approximately fifty pages in volume VII. A quality example of this magnificent set.
