About this Item

C. is 1932, but date on front cover is 1933. Bound in decorated brown leatherette with raised gilt lettering and decoration. 286-plus pages of what amounts to advertising for Dr. Nichols' Sanatorium in Savannah, Missouri. The title on the title page is "The Value of Escharotics - Medicines Which Will Destroy Any Living or Fungus Tissue in the Treatment of Cancer, Lupus, Sarcoma or Any Other Form of Malignancy." Portraits of some of the folks who work there. Pages and pages of testimonials, which actually make up the bulk of the text, although there is some discussion of what cancer, etc. are. Snake oil. Amusing, if only for the portraits (Head Nurse Mrs. Ida Rector puts one immediately in mind of Nurse Ratchet.) Large fold-out aeroplane view of the sanatorium and grounds. Slight wear. Tight. Clean but for a couple of tiny specks. Bookseller Inventory # 000394
