From 1878, a solid copy of THE PEOPLE'S MEDICAL ADVISER, OR MEDICINE SIMPLIFIED by Dr. R.V. Pierce. A rare 19th century medical adviser, with numerous anatomical and medicinal plant engravings. The boards and bindings are solid and tight with little shelfwear. The corners are slightly rubbed. The pages are crisp and clean save previous owner's signature on the first and second blank pages. A very well preserved copy of a noted and scarce medical text!
